      Replaced a longer reach stem on mountain bike to get in more comfortable position for smaller rider.
      Stem looks good and is not too heavy.

          Updated the stem to raise the handlebar on my wife's bike. Good fit with standard handlebar I put on years ago, to replace the drop handlebar. Went with the 90mm length, to keep the bar as close as possible to the rider.

            Great Upgrade for old school 80's road bikes. I have installed 4 of these and the only cable that I usually have to lengthen is the front brake cable all others have enough slack. This stem not only brings the handlebars up it brings them back to you for a much more comfortable reach. I have used them in daily commuting, in centuries, and even road one at Six Gap.

                Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

                If you need a quill stem, these are the ticket! They come in 1" and 1 1/8", and have many sizes of reach. Great for getting the bars up on an old bike that may not fit you properly, or to gain some upright riding comfort. I have used this stem to make several of my friends old bikes more comfortable for them. Even using one on a brand new touring bike (that has a quill stem of course).

                My one gripe is that I wish Nashbar would offer a polished silver option, as this would look better on certain older bikes.

                Thanks again Nashbar, for your economical and well made products!

                    For this type of riser stem you usually have to pay at least $50 so it's heck of a deal.

                    Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

                    After having bought the Nashbar Trekker Bars, I found that my bike's stock stem left my bars lower and farther back than I would have liked to have had them. As a remedy I bought this stem, which places the bars where I wanted them. The bike is now comfortable to ride and the steering input is perfect with the Trekker bars.

                    Okay, so it's a little ugly, but I can live with it.

                      This was used to adjust the ride position on a friends commuter bike (1991 TREK 7000 mtn. bike).....it did the trick.

                      Not too many bikes use quill stems anymore, but when you need one, you need one. This one is nothing too special, but it will get the job done for a very good price. It's a tad heavy so don't put it on your vintage racer. My only other gripe with it involve the holes where the face plate bolts on. The holes that the bolts thread into aren't quite threaded deep enough. When securing the proper diameter bar, I seemed to run out of threads before the bar was truly clamped tightly. I kept cranking the bolts down since it's only aluminum they're cutting into, but still...not a great feeling.
