  • and the fact that they're also steel ... Only problem is they are super rare in shorter lengths.

    You should learn to braze ;)

  • oh man, that would honestly rule. I can't be trusted with physical craftwork though, I've been in the 2-d game too long.

  • I had a look on ebay but could only find one and it was like £20.

    I did buy a lot of 3 steel itm quill stems that I'm gonna hack up and put 31.8 clamps on.

  • Challenge accepted. Your thread gives me motivations.

  • yeah, they tend to go for more on eBay. Co-op is the way to go if you've got a local one.

    I'm in the US but at least here you're basically guaranteed to be able to find at least one or two in the stems bin; I guess GT must have been making a lot of threadless bikes and putting them on basically every single one for a few years there.

  • Yeah I need to take a trip to the coop and see what they have.

  • I got one! Was riding past the bike coop place today, limping home because my pedal bearings were loose, totally not planning on going in but I just heard a little voice... ”...come in, there’s something for you...” and there it was.

    £10 so not super cheap and chrome so I’ll need to file/sand that off to braze on It but the steerer clamp thing is so neat!

  • Whoa, haven't seen one with the double bottom-clamp like that! Super cool.

  • I guess this fits here?

  • It ain’t got a double bolt clamp no more ;)

  • oh nice. Putting different clamps on cool stems is one of those things that make me wish I could braze.

  • nds fail. but still

  • nds fail.

    Look a little closer.
