WTB - Head Stem Quill Style ~ 130mm

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I've broken an old quill style stem in my tri bike 😮. The bars kept slipping and I've been bit heavy handed on the bolt tightening and split the alloy on the front bolt. Guess it pays to look at what your doing rather than just inserting the allen key and turning it 🤔. The current one is a 3T Motus style. Just seeing if anyone in Trannie land has an old quill style stem (any brand) in a spares box in the garage. Would prefer one that is either hinged or has two or more bolts so I dont have to take the levers and bar tape off and thread the bars through (bit lazy and fiddly to do that). Current length is 130mm, so will need to be that or close to. I know I can go a quill adapter and get an ahead style stem but figured this might look a bit untidy. When I'm up for a whole upgrade, my 91 model Cannondale 3.0 Series Criterium frame will get the whole treatment, re-spray, carbon fork, aheadset, Di2 etc. It will be my modern retro. I'm swapping the quill stem over from my equally retro roadie ('96 CAAD 3) to get me by for the time being. Thanks Richard
