When renovating an old road or town bike you often find that the old quill stem and bar combo is a little low and narrow, and doesn’t offer the control and comfort that you’d prefer. You could source a longer quill stem, though that doesn’t solve the bar width issue (and it looks weird), so a cheaper option can be to replace the bar with a compatible riser. The Charge Spit fits the older 25.4mm stem clamp size and at 590mm offers plenty of steering precision — and can be hacksawed down if you want to fine-tine further. Available in black, white, polished, pewter and red, it comes with ‘bullet’ end caps. A stylish, top value upgrade for retro-builders. MB
