Won't that work instead of actually changing the stem? That's just a connector right? No assembly required?
This is not laziness you're witnessing. This is fear. If my bike wasn't my only ride, I'd feel more comfortable attempting my own work. Since I must rely on my bike, I'm so hesitant to mess something up.
Yes, that would work. Just don't leave it on the tire when you ride off.
Oh, and just for the record, i don't know of anyone that pulled their wheels off, and broke down their tires just to put angled stems on. Most folks buy them...... and then have them installed when they get new tires.
