Is it an aheaset steerer on the fork?

yes for now until I get the funds for a suitable quill one :)


It´s nice as it is. Maybe a bit long: have you tried a 110mm w/ a bit of rise?

ive been looking for ages for a ringle stem in a shorter version they just never come up so had to settle for the one on her for now :(

If it´s a rider fit trumps all. I am particularly atracted to salsa stems, quill or ahead; even if it´s not better. 8) Otoh salsa is as hard as ringle to get.

That ringle you´ve got there will sell fast. Get something that fits you better so you better enjoy the bike. It does not matter if it´s not the ideal look.. Find the right size and later knowing well what fits you, have a custom made steel stem.
