 a few reasons you will benefit from a SteerStopper®

2. It's easier to carry your bike when the front wheel isn't flopping.

3. Easy access to your panniers without having to wrestle with your bike.  

4. Save $$ in damage to you bike from unnecessary falls.

5. Ideal for Recumbent, Tandem, Single and E-Bikes!

7. 100% designed, manufactured and hand-assembled in the U.S.A.  It works with fenders, too!

8. Holds your steering bearing preload when you change your stem height. 

9. Easier to push your loaded touring bike from behind, up steep hills. 

10. Holds your steering straight when your bike is on the work stand.

11.  Easier for your riding partner to hold your bike while you do... whatever.

12.  Easily lean two bikes together without kickstands, as long as they both have SteerStoppers®

Will The SteerStopper® will fit my bike? 

 

Check your Steering System for the clamp & Lever Assembly:

Threadless Steer System, 1-1/8", YES - This is the most common size and is the size of the SteerStopper.

Quill Stem, YES (classic/old style) fitted using a spacer, sold separately.

Threadless Steer System 1", YES (less common) fitted using a spacer, sold separately.

 

Measure your Top Tube (The  Diameter & Shape for the Receiver:

1-1/8" (28.57mm dia.) round tube: Yes

1-1/4" (31.75 dia.) round tube: Yes

1-1/2" (38.1mm dia.) round tube: Yes

Braze-on Style:  Great option if your bike is being custom built or refurbished.  A nut is brazed to the top tube and the receiver is installed with a screw.

Universal Fit:  Now Available!  Fits non-round top tubes.  Maximum diameter is 2-1/2" (63mm)

The easiest way to determine your top tube diameter is to use a flexible measuring tape and measure the circumference and then divide by 3.14.  If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, you can use a piece of masking tape to wrap the tube, then measure the length & do the math.
