re: 7cm quill stem needed - Call Bikeworks...zmarke

If you read my earlier posting you may have seen that I combined 2 old bikes to get one single speed bike. The stem on the purple Cannondale was a very nice 1" Nitto quill stem that may have actually been only 6cm. The shop has all the unused parts for sale from my build (they are no longer mine - I traded for some new parts).

Anyway, Call bikeworks in NYC (212-388-1077) and ask for Dave or email them at bikeworks@bikecult.com but the email response may not be so quick since they are always very busy during the day. They are open from 12-6pm EST.

Remind Dave that it should be in the parts box from the purple Cannondale touring frame and the blue Motobecane he just worked on and I picked up on Saturday. He may even be willing to sell you a almost new set of Shimano 600 aero brake levers and road bar that are probably still attached to the stem I am talking about.

I am sure he still has it since he is not open on Sunday and I picked up my new (old) bike on Saturday at closing.

Good Luck!

but it's attached to my new fixie (woohoo!) although I really want to change it out for a 100 mm one. If that's what you have I'll swap you! It's an old Atax.

You can also try Nashbar.com and they have a bunch of stems on discount. I THINK there might have been some super short stems there.

The clamp is probably a 25.6 clamp or close to that. I measured about 82 mm circumference around the bulge. My old modern handlebars measure about 90 mm or so. Will this work for you?
