Likewise: URGENT! Hook stem
« on: November 30, 2008, 11:03:49 PM »
Would the hook stem fit on the KHE stylus, the stem i;m using now is 1 1/8", which is 2.85cm

Will the 26mm hook stem fit here, or is that a definate no?

Also: I'm using sick child metal years handlebars, I hear the size makes a diff due to the design of the stem.

Come on guys! learn crap about your bike. all modern day stems are 1 1/8 and all bars work with all modern day stems.

Learn it?

I just did :), thanks to snICKer and Advanced Projects.

How did you learn that stuff then, if not by simply asking?

oh also you might want to check your steer tube height with that stem you want as much contact as possible so you want the whole stem to fit. my steer tube is a little too small so i had to take my dust cover off of my head set.

Indeed most modern steerer tubes are 1-1/8 diameter and handlebar clamp tube diameters are 7/8.  However, they may not necessarily be compatible because the steerer tube may not be long enough and/or the stem may be too wide for the design of the bars.  I personally am not familiar with these items so I don't have an answer but I can help you ask the right questions.  :mellow:
