Safe to cut a Nitto Technomic quill shorter?treeman
Oct 2, 2002 3:54 PM
I was given a Nitto Technomic 225mm quill to use on my 50 cm. roadbike. The technomic Delux with 190 mm quill is what I really need to get my bars closer to seat level (225 is too long).

My machine shop buddy thinks he can shorten the quill and bolt - no problems.

Anyone out there have experience with this? Stem failure is not a pretty picture.

Besides Rivendell, does anyone else sell the delux Nitto stem?

Thanks.
