looking for an inexpensive quill to shorten the reach.
Everything I see is $$$$. Any suggestions?

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 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 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?
