Not quite classic but a super clean stem I have. I imagine quite rare. Was in a random box under a table at a cycle jumble job for £5 years ago.
Is there anything like this but for 1 inch forks? Or is there a shim long enough (65mm+) I could buy online?
How about this?
Salsa stem and the spacer is a section cut from the downtube of a trashed frame
That's neat, have done the same with a 1 inch ahead Nitto stem on my road bike. Looks better in your case as the Salsa stem has only one bolt.
thanks, Ideally, I'd like a bigger frame and a salsa stem with a 17 degree drop but both are hard to find!
Not sure where to put this
Totally belongs in this thread
Nice solution, but very pricy and a bit bulky looking for a traditional frameset, imo.
Cheaper than replacing a steerer...
And even if you've got 1" threadless, I doubt there's a 31.8 stem you won't need a shim for.
Looks fine on aluminium, but yeah, pushing it on steel... But if that's what you're doing, this is the thread you'll be looking at.
The Thomson X2 is kinda flush, but pretty bulky- it's not a suggestion, this pic is just to illustrate a 9/8" stem on a 1" steerer...
