Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!
Thanks for the reply, man. When you say quill, do you mean the handlebar mount part of the stem?
My bike has steel forks but an alloy adjustable stem that lets you move the bars higher or further forward, hinged with an allen head lock bolt. It feels stout, but head butting asphalt really sucks.
I haven't really started on it yet, so everything is up in the air, so to speak.
I think I need a steel stem.
Whoops- thread drift, I'll chuttup.
