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.

    Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

    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.

      Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

      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.

            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.

                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.
