I need to get some rise for my t-less setup. Will I have any problem flipping a stem. I'm thinking of taking a -17 and flipping it to get my moustache bars up around saddle high.

99% of stems made these days can be flipped with no problems. I just did it with mine and it's great. (Except for the upside down logo...) Personally, I'd prefer having more spacers and a non-riser stem, but that's not always an option. :^(

If you flip a -17 stem it will raise the bars about 6cm but it will also shorten the horizontal length by 2cm. If you only want the bars higher, you need a stem that is 2cm longer.
