My g/f has a 93 specialized allez that she wants to put some new handlebars on. She likes it more than her newer bike, she says it's the feel of steel, but it's hot pink, so the verdict is still out. I will agree the bike fits her very well, except the handle bars are freakishly wide, and she likes her FSA Wing Pros (flat top). Does anybody have any experience with a quill stem adapter? She is mostly a swimmer but enjoys about 2 rides a week with me, where we go anywhere between 20-50 miles at a time. It is a pretty causal pace (to my standard) so not too worried if this hinders performance in any way. I just don't want to buy one if it is complete garbage.
