Re: [BOBishBikesFS] Digest Number 301
- BOBs and Bob,
You can get a shim to allow use of a threaded stem
intended for one inch steerers with your 1 1/8"
steerer. My Burley tandem came with one of these
installed. Works just fine... As for the need for
the hole/pulley on the stem itself, can't you also use
a cable stop that clamps to the stem quill? I have
several bikes with cantilever brakes now using the
clamp-on cable stops, since the replacement headsets
all seemed to have significantly more stack height.
Just trying to give you a few more stem options....
