A friend of mine was getting a sore back and asked me about finding a more upright stem. I told him to try flipping the stem he had over. It did the trick. Lots of them have writing on both sides so either way you flip it, it looks OK. No shame in doing this. Cheaper than a new stem and more comfortable than a sore back.
