Anyone know where you can get a decent quill stem these days? Been looking all over and there doesn't seem to be much of a supply.

One good way to find a quill is used off of ebay or on this site. I have a 110mm Cinelli 1" quill that I have had for a few years and it is hardly used, if you are interested. I am sure many roadies have them sitting around collecting dust, and would love to get rid of them.

They're still out there. What are you looking for? If it's classical you want, visit Rivendell for some nice stems. Profile still makes some, I think Control Tech does, and ITM has a bunch.

But it really depends on what you're after. I'm currently a fan of ControL Tech (sans decals), but YMMV.

They have a small but high-quality selection, and some quill lengths you don't often find anymore.

Like the new Salsa stems with removable face plates... not the lightest - but not heaviest either - very very strong - at excel and supergo I think.

not as sweet as the record 84, but pretty nice stems. i picked up a 110 and 120, just to have on hand.

Thanks for all the help. I checked out the Rivendell site and those are really nice, if a bit pricey. The others are all great choices, the only problem being that most of the mail order places don't seem to have any selection.

www.excelsports has 90, 105 deg Salsa classic road stems on sale for $29.95. I just bought 2 90deg 110 and 120 just to have on hand. Really nice stem if your set up allows for a slight rise.
