25.4mm Short Stem

Postby doublem_1 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 21:51 pm

Hi all,

After not being too happy with my 90mm stem for trail use I am looking for a short stem around 40-50mm in the 25.4mm bar size. Something with not much raise either or flat would be ideal. Can anyone recommend one? Looking to spend around £20-30. :)

60mm from Exotic? I was looking for similar a while back and in the end went for 31.8mm bars so that I could get a wider choice of bar and stem.

Loads out there, there is a generic block style one that gets about, bit heavy but perfectly functional, usually got for less than a tenner.

90 to 45 is a BIG jump though......

Do you know what they are called? Haven't seen any around for that price.

Most are unbranded, hence generic. Cro Magnon used to be one, Brand X is another.

Looks quite nice and the sort of thing I'm after. But I want either black or darkish green to keep with the colours of the bike.
