.833 is also the same as 21.1mm. A lot of first generation mtb and BMX stems are that size, as are cruisers. Wald makes a butt ugly 21.1 stem- the #4, but there are others out there that would look prettier.

Howdy folks,

I need a longish stem for the Schwinn Super Sport commuter build I am going to do. The top tube is too long to use the Nitto moustache bars I am using now (would need a 6cm stem, too short for my taste). I am going to use flipped Nitto "albatross" north road style bars, which have much less reach. I would like to find an 11cm "S" stem like the ones that came on most of the 70s Schwinns. Anybody have one to spare? A 10cm would probably work and a 12 might be okay at the out end... Thanks in advance :^)
