Factory Five Quill Stem Makes it Possible to Use Oversized Handlebars

If you’re a “fixie” of the retro persuasion, or someone who simply prefers to ride a vintage road bike, but would like to use an oversized modern handlebar – you’re in luck.  

Factory Five has introduced it new F5 Titan quill stem, which can accommodate 31.8 handlebars. Dig!


The F5 Titan Stem is an evolution in traditional quill stem design. We’ve always wanted a stem that could accommodate 31.8mm handlebars without having to use an adapter and still look classic enough that it would compliment any 1″ threaded headset bike.

It’s incredibly light and will finally allow you to choose from the wide world of handlebar possibilities. Forged from 7075 aluminium, the removable faceplate is held in place with two stainless steel screws and subtly finished with our Circle F5 logo laser-etched in the center. 150mm total height, 100mm above the minimum insertion lattice enrgraved pattern and a 90mm extension.

We’ve high polished the stem and it is deep anodized in silver to give the traditional quill stem look. It delivers performance and style, which for a component with so much attention, delivers exactly the right level of satisfaction.

Shipping will start as of November 30th. If you’re a shop and interested in stocking these bad boys then get in touch with us through e-mail and we’ll sort you out.
