Size

Ride More seats are great for cruising. If you cycle on a "cruiser" style bike, or perhaps an an older bike, you won't need the standard Ride More spacers. Instead, you need an adapter for your stem, so that the Ride More front clamp fits properly. That's the "quill stem adapter".

There are two sizes of Quill Stem Adapter and it is important to know what you need. They are not interchangeable.

  • 7/8" or 22.2mm.
  • 1" or 25.4mm. 

Sometimes the size is marked on the shaft of the stem, inside the steerer tube, but not always. If you have calipers, you can determine the size you need (the measurement is the diameter). If you are not sure what size adapter your bike needs, if you are in North America, you can use the "quarter test" pictured here. Some further information here. And you can also check in with your local bike shop.

Quill Install

  1. Instead of swapping out a spacer on your steerer tube to install our standard spacer, use the quill adapter
  2. Once you loosen your stem (with bars), remove them from the frame
  3. Slide the quill upward on to the tube
  4. Reinstall your stem (with bars)
  5. The quill adapter does not need to be tightened. It should be snug, but not at all "cranked".

Works great

Had an old bike we wanted to use the Mac ride on. Measured the stem with calipers, ordered, and quickly installed. Easy.

Perfect for Electra

Added 1" adapter to our Electra Townie. Now we can swap between our mountain bike and cruiser in a flash. Make sure to order a bell too. Bing! Bing!

Exactly what I needed

I have an older cruiser that required the quill stem in order to install the Mac Ride. Worked great and allowed for easy installation of the Mac Ride.

Don’t ride away without…
