|Greetings...I have recently had a Look 281 built up. I enjoy this bike. However, being that I am not quite as flexible as I used to be, I am considering replacing the Look carbon stem with a stem of equal quality that has a bit more rise. So far, I have only been able to alloy stems. Can any readers recommend a carbon stem that would work?

|well, if you're dead set on a carbon stem, the only other one I can think of off the top of my head is the Giant composite stem, which is over a hundred dollars. check with the local Giant dealer; they can order this in.
now, why not alloy? as weight weenie as I am, even I'm not willing to pay over a hundred bucks for a stem. perhaps you would consider the 3T Zepp? 130ish grams, and by reports quite reliable.

|WR Compositi carbon stems are available in 0 degree rise which should help. I think they are available from Dave Lloyd Bikesport in the UK.|

|Look makes a carbon stem, at least it is listed on the LOOK international website. Perhaps your LBS could inquire through Veltec Sports for availability?
