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)

Steep quill stem

Hi all, I just bought my friends beater bike from him. I want to put a steeper quill stem on it, but am not sure what to get or even how to search for it. Anything you guys recommend? I mean something really steep.

Like a riser stem? Kalloy makes a decent one for $15:

This is what I'm talking about! But any cheaper alternatives? After all- It's a beater.

Not the prettiest, but it'll go as steep as you want.
