    Quill Stem Diameter, 1986 Schwinn High Sierra

    Got this bike on CL for $80. Perfect for building as a commuter/tourer. The only thing about the bike that is not in mint condition is the slingshot stem. For some unknowable reason the previous owner sawed out the cable hanger that was integral to the stem and then jury rig reattached it to the housing for the front reflector. ??? Anyway, I will be replacing the stem with an adjustable comfort quill stem, but I don't know whether to purchase the 1" or 1 1/8". Anyone have a clue?

    Quill Stem Diameter, 1986 Schwinn High Sierra

    Be careful it could be an older BMX sized 13/16" , 21.15mm quill. Something fairly common on early MTB's.
