Been looking on the bay but wondered if anyone has any spares in their parts bin.
I’m after a couple of stems 120mm and 130mm, standard 1 1/8" and 31.8mm, nothing too steep 7 or 8 degrees.
Also, think my road bike saddle has had it, creaking and flex and generally shit. Looking for something cheap-ish to replace it with.
I have been meaning to swap my stem as the reach is too long. I thought it was 120mm, but I just measured it and its 110mm. Any good to you? Its a bobby basic Bontrager that came on my entry level trek. You can have it for nothing.
Just going to order a cheap one from Wiggle. I have only had the bike 8 years, about time I made it comfortable
Thanks for the offer, I’ve got a borrowed 120mm and it’s either ok or slightly too short. 110mm not likely to work for me. I ended up with a small collection of these things at one point and then had a clearout
It’s remarkable the spread in £££ for something simple like a stem. Can’t believe some people are buying the £200+ ones
I was just looking on Wiggle. Cheapest stem is £12, most expensive £250. What do you get? a 40g weight saving. Madness.
I have realised why Ive not changed mine before. I have 22mm handle bars and pretty much all the stems I can find are 31.8
I have a FSA 120mm 6 degree stem in my parts bin. Ping me your address and I can post it tomorrow
There are some ebay stores which have a lot of NOS or second hand stems which could fit
PX website usually good for cheap components. Hell, I have the £20 PX ‘Arione’ saddle on my £3.8k Canyon
I’ll have another look, last time I did they didn’t have any normal saddles in, only Brookes leather copies.
This one? Any good?
That’s the one I have! Horses for courses, but I didn’t get on with the Fizik Aliante R3 my Canyon came with.
Charge Spoon is a good value saddle that gets good reviews. I’ve got them on a couple of bikes, road & MTB, about £30.
