1 1/4" stem makers?

Postby naffets » Thu Mar 20, 2014 21:32 pm

Got a canyon ultimate on order and need a longer stem than the one on. It comes
with a ritchey wcs I think canyon do a return service but have been waiting a long time already
and wouldn't like to hazard a guess to how long it would take to swap.
Does anybody know what makers do a 1.25" instead of the usual 1.12" stem

regards
Stef

you have to buy the ritchey from canyon as anything else voids warranty on fork.

What length do you need?

...also, in the warranty does it really say it is void if you use any other stem? Seems daft. (not that there's a lot of choice out there anyway)

I've been looking into this too. As need to lower the front end given the extra height of the Acros headset.

Giant OD2 (overdrive) come in two versions with 1.25.

Syntace do/did one (F119) but are like hen's teeth.

Read some speculation that Specialized CLP adjustable stem apparently works if you remove the shims, but I'm seeing mixed reports and don't really fancy any play or risk of overtightening.

I tried this at work when in need of entertainment, it is not safe.
