If youre looking for something more of a classic look, just buy another stem for each handlebar. Theyre not that expensive.

Usually stems with removable face plates are just bulky and ugly.

I think someone doesn't want to have to rewrap the bars.

isnt there one called a bullfrog or something? i remember those looked nice. I switched to an oversize wing bar on my 97 trek (threaded headset) and used a quill to threadless converter. It works well, but does have a bit of an ugly factor to it.

Cinelli Frogs were pretty nice, not classic design though. Don't know if they're still made.

Salsa is the only commonly available, non butt-ugly option. But they only come in black.

You can sometimes find cinelli frogs or TTT stems with removeable faceplates on ebay.

anyone know what stem they used on the fuji X obey bike? It was a nice quill with removable faceplate. I just need to find a polished one though instead of gold...
