Not ideal I know, but I need an extra 20-30mm length on my steerer tube to accomodate a cable hanger, they work like a quill stem so strength and integrity should be ok.

I don't want to swap the forks as they're mint condition Ritchey Logics in 1" ahead - and they cost a bloody fortune :lol:

That's the very one I was looking at - reviews seem thin on the ground. I take it you've used one Steve?

Cheers

Used a Halfords one on my Zaskar, 16 stone plus on and off road with no ill effects.
Does need doing up every so often.

Used them on many bikes to fit ahead stems to threaded forks
You can shim them up too

Like the purple beast - I have an exact same pair of 'Wildgrippers'.

Can you pick your stem cap using the BBB extender?
