    Converted a 90's MTB to a city bike. This stem was an inexpensive option to raise the bars for a more relaxed riding position. It worked well and seems to be a sturdy construction without adding too much weight

      Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

      I'm new to road biking and found that my hands were numb after rides of 20 miles or more. I tried padding my handlebars, and using a shorter stem with some improvement, but not enough to make me truly comfortable. Someone in my bike club told me about Nashbar and sent me a link to the Comfort Quill Stem. Another fellow I ride with noticed I needed to change my stem and I showed him the link and he agreed. We chatted a bit about the size I needed, I placed my order and I love it. The stem allows me to sit a bit more upright and as I become stronger I can lower it to a "normal" position. This may be the cheapest solution to any problem I have with my bike.

        Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

        I used this to rebuild an old Peugeot into a touring bike. The stems on those have a reputation for failure and the clamp is for the old 22.2 bars, aaaand French anything means "different from every other bike ever." It was a little too snug getting in but I wrapped some 100 grit sandpaper around it and sanded for maybe half an hour and it's perfect. Check first, it will fit some French bikes fine, and when sanding check often because you don't have to remove much. I got the medium size. It's a pretty upright sitting position now, and super comfortable.

          I am setting up my wife's old Balance for my son who needs a bit less forward reach on the hard-tail MTB. This stem was a great price and provides the perfect geometry for him.

            Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

            Again, this is awesome. I expected it to weight at least a half-pound more. Very surprising lightweight. Love the 2-bolt clamp for the handlebars, very sufficient for all but the most harsh off-road riders. Stylish, too. My recommendation is to get the longest one if you are converting an older bike to this quill stem and probably also buying the Nashbar flatbar. The short length is totally impractical unless you are riding totally upright like a statue, any other riding position and you will want probably the longest stem or at least the middle length.

              Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

              This is the best stem I have found for restoring older bikes. This stem adds instant comfort and the bolt on handlebar cap makes it much easier to change out handlebars. The only complaint I have is the color - almost 99% of the stems on the older bikes I restore are silver and the bike components and accessories are all aluminum and chrome and the black never looks as good as silver would.

              Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

              If your bike has a threaded headset and it forces you into a leaned over position that is hard on your back, here is a very good quality, inexpensive and lightweight fix. Substituting this stem for the bike's original will put you in a more comfortable upright position. If your older bike has a single bolt steel stem, it will save some weight too. Its double bolt on cap makes removing and adjusting the handlebars much easier also. The increase in air drag caused by the more upright position is slight. We have bought and installed several. Each one made their riders happier. The upright seating position does make the quality of the saddle more important to some riders. Fortunately, there are many inexpensive, better quality saddles available when compared to the typical OEM's low cost generic saddles.

                thank you nashbar for continuing to stock an affordable stem that keeps older bikes on the road. I have bought 2, one to raise the handlebard on a 1992 mtn bike and another to shorten the reach on a 1980's mtn bike. I will buy another for a touring bike build. Great quality and great value.

                  This was a replacement/upgrade for a dreadful adjustable quill stem on a low-end Trek comfort bike. MUCH lighter, vastly more stable, and VERY reasonably priced. I can't recommend enough.
