Poorly done

Pros

  • Cheap

  • Poor Clamp Design
  • Weak Construction

Best Uses

    Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

    I bought this to use with a Nashbar CX fork. Even though it says it is compatible with 1 and 1/8 fork, the bottom piece (even when fully loosened) very obviously did not fit the tube, which astounds me considering these parts come from the same company.

      Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

      These type stems for ATB and Flat Bar bikes is becoming extinct and thank you Nashbar for making them available and at such a bargain price. Many low cost bikes come with stems inferior to this sturdy stem and it is great for raising the bar on flat bar bikes using the old 25.4 clamp size handlebar which has millions still out there. While not recommended for 26.0 mm road bars, I have filed the edges of the clamp where the stress points are and used it with success on old road bars too but be careful here and torque just enough to secure the bar. I always use the 130 mm length to get better steering stability with such a high rise. Shorter lengths could be twitchy on some bike and the length at this angle really just raise you more. Remember that the fork angle is 17 degrees so the real horizontal angle is 57 degrees, more up than out so little effect on reach.

        Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

        This stem was one of the few available that met my requirement for quill and handlebar diameters. This one easily installed on my older mountain bike. I especially like the two-bolt mount for the handlebar. I wanted a stem that helped shorten and raise my reach for casual trail rides with my wife - this one fit the bill perfectly.

          Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

          This was just what I was looking for to update my older touring bike from the older quill stems that don't feature a faceplate. Very inexpensive considering a new adapter and stem can get up to about $40-50. Very solid part.

            I turned an old mountain bike into a city bike with a more relaxed riding position. This was perfect and the price was really good. Nice that its the newer 4 bolt cap style rather than the older single bold style.

              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.
