0 degree stem?(6 posts)

0 degree stem?elviento

I am looking for a 11cm 0 degree road stem for 1 1/8 fork (+15 degrees when installed). Hopefully higher end but not Custom Serotta at $250. Similar to ITM Millennium, etc. Cut the fork a bit short but reversing the Deda gives too much rise. I know Controltech made one but only with 1" steerer. Thanks. If there is no such stem. 7.5" Litespeed 1 1/8 Reynolds OUzo Pro fork for sale $95.
Ritchey would be close...Jekyll

Their stems are 84 degrees - Flip and you will get close to where you want to be. Or (maybe heresy) use an MTB stem. MTB bars are theoretically smaller (like 25.4 vs 25.8) so most MTB stem should hold a road bar just fine and there is just about any rise/length combo available.

Salsa makes a 105 (15 degree rise) stem as well.... Look at Excel.

not sure if it's supposed to be good with carbon steerers or not. Nice stems.

Otherwise, yes, Salsa. And Steelman makes a nice one, too.
