- Roadie stem advice.
It’ll hand like a dog with such a short stem, and the range of quill stems available isn’t huge so you’d probably be looking on ebay.
With older frames, frame size was much more critical than on modern frames where spacers, stems and seat posts can be used to make it fit a wider range of riders. Unless you’re 6’2+, I’d ditch the frame (they can make handy money on ebay) and get something that fits.
Are you looking to use it as a winter bike? I put the bits off an old Ribble on a Dolan Prefissio with full mudguards… It’s fantastic.Posted 4 years agoseizednutsMember
Ive got an not sure how old steel ribble road bike sitting in my shed,
Its a 60cm way to big for me realy but i ride it anway and its comfortable for a 50+miles ride. Recently treated myself to a modern carbon fibre right size bike. So not using the ribble.
Now ive i got a hankering to bull horn the thing but then it would be way to long for me. The steerer looks tobe about 1″ any ideas where i could get an shorter stem to fit? Imean like realy short possibly under 30mm?Posted 4 years agounovoloMember
