What companies make stems under 90mm?(7 posts)

What companies make stems under 90mm?rpicayo

I have a 2000 trek 2300. It has a 90mm icon graphite series stem currently. I would like to get a shorter one (80 maybe 70mm). Icon doesn't make one as far as I know. I know salsa makes an 80 but I don't know if their cro-moly construction would be comparable to the stock stem. Are there any other companies that make medium to high quality stems that are 70 or 80mm?

Salsa makes stems down to 6 cm (or maybe its 6.5). Pretty much all of their stems are higher quality than an Icon stem. I recommend the S.U.L. version; probably the best designed quill stem on the market (it also comes threadless).
Profile Designs H2O comes in 80mm (nm)Dave Hickey

Bontrager makes 80mm stems. Salsa does indeed go down to 60mm, Profile as well.
As far as quality, I ride a Salsa S.U.L. (1 1/8" cro-moly threadless), and it beats any Icon product hands down.
