|what kind of stem is that and why don't they use it anymore? sorry for my ignorance, but i've only been into cycling for a year, so i've never owed an older road bike.
|its cool! I am starting to feel old!||the bull|

|It is a treaded fork it needs a "stem" I guess.
I call the new ones treadless stems!
It is a QUILL stem
|you're not old- i'm new(ish)!||AFrizzledFry|

|Looks very much like an 84, if it has a clamp bolt and small a/k grub screw underneath then I'd say it was.
Ps, Like the fish!!

|we don't use them any more because, as you can see, it doesn't follow the shortest distance from the fork to the handelbars.|
|The real reason they don't make stems like that is...||Dave Hickey|

|I's cheaper for manufactures to make a just one fork that has to be cut to length instead of having to thread a fork for every frame size.|

|Agreed, and it can be a better system for fitting rider to bike. That's why all these fraudulent new "comfort road bikes" have flat bars--because of the perception, not the reality, that drop bars in and of themselves are less comfortable. As for the French bashing, gee, will I ride the Gitane or the Lejeune today?|
