I am looking for a stem that will put my handlebars a centimeter or so higher. Does anyone know of any stems that have an angle other than 80 degrees?

Several Ritchey models have 84/96 degree angles. Ritchey stems also have a fairly tall stem clamp that will add at least a few millimeters to the height. The 84 degree angle alone will give you 7-8mm of height. Flipping the stem will increase the height by almost 2cm, but also shorten the reach almost 1cm (buy the next longer size).

Nashbar has a Ritchey with a 90 degree angle on sale for $30. I think they only have 80,90 and 110 available.

I ordered a 110. Wanted to see if I prefer an 84 degree Ritchey with 1cm of spacer or the 90 with no spacers.

The Salsa SUL is the best O degree (90 degree) rise stem that I have found. Much stiffer and better steering than the Ritchey (I tried them both).
Note: I have 2 Salsa 0 degree rise stems for sale $39. shipped (110mm & 120mm length).
Excellent condition, black & will fit both 1" & 1.5" steerers.
