Evening all,

I am posting on behalf of my friend and he is looking for Ahead stem shims 25.4 TO INCH AND EIGHT
Has anyone a couple or more of these. They allow one inch old school fork steerers to use the bigger inch and eight stems and they used to be in all stems

He needs a couple after his friend had a smash and is rebuilding his damaged machine into an older alloy inch type frame and fork.

Thanks,

Richard

Just ask in a bike shop, they'll probably give you them for a quid or if you ask nice enough they'll be free

Bumpity bump.
