Bought a used bike, the stem's bent, no idea how it happened. I was wondering if it can be fixed or if I need a new one.

That’s a stem? I mean if you bent it back then it will become weak so I would just get a new one

It's a wedge stem, I think. Okay, thanks.

Well, it's steel... and you can bend it back without it snapping like aluminum would be prone to doing... but you still risk it breaking easier then anyway


Assuming it's 1", you'll need this. Or go to a shop and see if they have any used ones lying around.


honestly though, if the bike has a stem like that... it's most likely not worth fixing up. I'd suggest finding a used stem and save up for a better bike

Yep, steel 1" quilled stem. They only come on cheap bikes. You're better off saving some money for a better bike

Is that your bike in the picture? And if so why is the front end a mountain bike?
