Popping a threadless time fork on my rossin pista to increase clearance, have the headset so now just looking for a 1 inch ahead stem to complete it. Looking for around 100-110mm, 25.4 clamp so I can keep the same bars and preferably silver without a huge drop in terms of angle, but will consider anything really.
Proper rat bike so doesn’t need to be fancy or nos or anything.
Anyone have anything going? Or any idea where to look, would it be vintage mtb stems I should be looking for?
This thread might give you some ideas
Have this one
I have a couple of black and silver 1 1/8 stands with 25.4mm clamps. You can run them with a shim.
They look decent on these bikes as the stem is very low profile so doesn’t look too incongruous.
I was using them until I went and had a full custom stem made. It’s almost impossible finding a 1” ahead in the style you want IME.
£5 forum donation of you want it. I have 100 and 110mm lengths
Logos rub off easily.
I've just spent the last few months trying different 1" stems for a new build...they do come up on eBay, if you do a general search for '120mm stem', then filter by steerer tube diameter / stem type, it should bring up a bunch.
There's definitely a few around but a lot are MTB stems that have less desirable angles. The road bike market really went from threaded to 1 1/8 treadless with barely a stop at 1" threadless. Then there's the 26.0 vs 25.4 clamp to deal with.
This might work
Thanks so much, tons of ideas there!
I have these 2 ( not my photos ) . The sakae is maybe 110/120 the Cinelli maybe 120/130. I can check this weekend
Cinelli is 26.0 but the other one may be 25.4
Thanks, think I’m going to try and find something a bit more quill like if you know what I mean? Thank you though!
Thanks for all of these ideas, now I’ve seen all these options I’m going to try and stick it out for a silver one to tie things in. Really appreciated though mate, cheers!
Cheers, intrigued by that sakae, is it a hollow centre running down the stem??
Looking at a 3ttt mutant on eBay just now, intrigued by how that would look..
Almost hollow. I think it’s definitely 25.4 and I’ll double check the length but I think 110. Would sell for £10 plus post etc .
Never seen anything like that, I’d love to give it a shot! I’ll send you a pm, cheers.
