Default Help converting quill stem!!!

Hi there!!! So I'm new to bikes and I've got a little problem I've run into!

I recently bought a rokform bike mount for my iPhone (http://www.rokform.com/cart/Rokbed-v....html).However, I have a quill stem and it won't fit (it says that it has to be installed on any 1-1/8" thread-less steer tubes). I bought a different quill stem that had a cap and I thought it would work, but that didn't work either. So, I'm looking for a way to convert to the headset and stem method. I live in downtown sac, so most of the area I ride around is flat, so I'm not a super heavy rider. Mostly ride between 5-15 miles at a time. Not looking to spend more than $50 to convert it. I currently have a threaded tube, please let me know what I need! Please include links to parts if you know of any. I'm sorry if this doesn't make any sense, I'm new to this so I don't know all the technical names of things.


The tube is 1-1/8" here's what it looks like without the quill stem installed.

And here is what it looks like with the quill stem installed (it's usually up a little higher, i just wasn't tightened in the picture).

The picture links don't work for me.

Something like this perhaps?

I did that (use an adapter for threadless stem) with my old Bottecchia. I bought mine from Velo Orange ( www.veloorange.com ) It is very clean looking and has quite a bit of vertical adjustability.

In my word, how that doing would help? Curious, just.
