I thought this would be perfect for my older Raleigh mountain bike because I expected to insert it between the fork and the existing handle bar post but the hole in the top of the adapter is too small. The existing post and the bracket that attaches the handle bars is one piece. The post is 7/8" diameter and fits snugly into the hole in the fork. I removed the handle bar assembly and inserted the adapter. Then I tried to insert the handle bar post into the top of the adapter but the hole is 13/16" diameter. I thought of enlarging the hole but I think the resulting wall will be too thin and the depth too shallow to be strong enough. The only other option is to remove the handle bar from the existing bracket and purchase a new bracket to clamp onto the top of the adapter. However, his option will result in the handle bars being only slightly raised. I probably will return the adapter and look for one that meets my needs. I found exactly what I needed. It is sold on...
This product looks good and fits my threaded 1" fork just fine. It's secure and sturdy, and the quill bolt is nice and strong.
However, it creaks annoyingly and loudly. If I loosen the quill bolt and tighten it back, the creaking goes away for an hour, but then it creeps back. I've tried lubricating the whole thing, but no luck. I'm shopping for another brand now.
It does the job but there are others on the market that have a cap to cover the top which are better
