Looking for a 80mm quill stem for 1 inch forks with a bit of rise.

Many thanks.

you might be quicker using a ahead/quill adapter. I doubt that there was much as short as 80mm in the MTB world from that era.

I have to measure it if it's any good, but it's quite short ;)

I've got this one laying around. It could be yours for the postage ...

It's a quill stem for an 1 inch fork. 90 mm. 30 deg rise. Used. It was mounted on a 1989 Giant Escaper.

Cheers,
Will

Thanks, but I'm trying not to go down that route. All the ones that I have seen have a chamfered edge at the bottom and don't look right.

Thanks, but I think that will be a little too short.

Thanks, Will, that looks perfect. If you let me know the postage we will get something sorted out.
