Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Stiff stem suggestions?

The craptacular ZOOM stem on my new ride flexes like crazy, so i'm looking to to replace it.

Anyone have a suggestion on a quill stem in a 120-130mm length, 73 degrees-ish.
Preferably open-faced and 25.4mm clamp diameter to fit my B123s
I don't think such a stem exists. I could, but rather not, run a quill to threadless adaptor.

I know a bunch of you will suggest a salsa stem, but I'm not to crazy about their looks, or the look of welded stems in general.
