Stems - O/S with +10 or more rise?(5 posts)

Stems - O/S with +10 or more rise?fallzboater
Apr 8, 2003 8:44 PM
I'm looking for a 31.7 stem with some rise, at least +10 deg (ride small frame for my leg length). Would also like fairly light and reasonable price and, ideally, silver rather than black. Any suggestions?

Lots of them out thereFez

Just about every -10 degree stem is reversible to +10 degree. If looks are a concern, make sure you get one with reversible lettering so it doesn't look "upside down."

The only thing more extreme that is widely available would be those Ritchey +/-17 degree stems.

I checked the Ritchey site, their +/-17 is only in 26.0 clamp. I'd love to find a +15 or so O/S.

The other one I found is the Specialized Team stem, which has angled shims and an insert that can be rotated 180 degrees to vary the rise angle. Retail price is only $30, and the advertised weight is the same as the Bontrager. Anybody try this stem?
