    Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

    I have used this stem on several rebuilt older bicycles in the past. It is well made and strong. It is also very reasonably priced. It provides the rider with a more upright comfortable riding position. Depending upon the I.D. of the particular bikes steerer tube, occasionally, I have had to turn down the O.D. of the stem for the length that it fits into the undersized tube's I.D. Since I have a metal working lathe, this is no problem for me. All of the riders that I've fitted this stem into their bikes have been very happy with the resulting more upright seating position. It does however sometimes in turn need an improved saddle also.

    Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

    Needed a shorter stem option for an older mountain bike. Make sure to check which version you need. A lot of stems will say what the diameter (ie 22.2, 25.4). I bought the 110mm version after considering the 90mm and I would say I'm really glad I didn't go shorter than 110mm.

    It went on fine and seems to work OK. It's not the prettiest and doesn't have the greatest looking welds compared to the original stem I had, but the price was low and there are not a lot of options for older bikes with a traditional headset.

          Comments about NASHBAR COMFORT QUILL STEM:

          Bought this stem in the 90mm size to shorten the reach on my wife's mountain bike. The rise is rather pronounced, so I had to insert the stem nearly as far as possible into the steerer tube, but it accomplished the objective. The reach is much better than with the Zoom 120mm stem originally provided with the bike, which is about 20 years old. This Nashbar stem is stoutly constructed, and therefore about as heavy as the old Zoom stem, which was steel but thinner-walled. The 2-screw handlebar clamp is very secure.

            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.

                    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.
