Anyone know where to find a traditional quill stem?SenorPedro

It seems to be harder and harder to find anyone carrying a simple quality aluminum quill stem. If you find a quill, then it is usually some steel tube job that just doesn't provide the clean aesthetics of a classic. I mean to find one with a 26.0 clamp, anyone know where?

Thanks,

Pedro

Any bike shop should have them or be able to get one. Every online bike shop carries quill stems. Try qbike.com and search for quill stem. You'll find 70 hits.
Just bought one on ebay for $10.49B2

Be careful about what clamp size you get. They make both mountain and road stems that are very similar looking.
