I love a good Nitto pearl and I'm more or less stem agnostic and like both the quill and threadless types. But, I've fought enough battles with stuck quill stems that I would not order a new custom with one, unless I was getting something like a Rivendell Roadeo.

The best core workout (and perhaps minor hernia) of my life involved a stuck stem from a Panasonic DX-4000 that I picked up as a "bargain" and spend about two weeks freeing the stem through all manner of ungodly means.
