MTB stem: comes in 0, 5 and 15 degree rise, 25.4mm clamp for mtb handlebars, 1-1/8

road stem: comes in 5 and 10 degree rise, 26.0mm clamp for road bars (not oversized), 1-1/8

other than that they look pretty much the same. It just comes down to the rise and clamp size fitting road bars. Local shop carries both and they look the same to me.
