Hi people,

Can anyone recommend or suggest an adjustable stem.

It needs to be a 1 and 1/8th steerer preferably to hold a 26.0MM BASE BAR.

It is going to be on my small boardman to allow me to gradually get down to a full aero setup.

Can anyone suggest one thats not going to break the bank?

The reason i need an adjustable is the current forks have been chopped off really low so can not use any spacers for instance.

Cheers,

Dru.

    Ritchey Pro - really solid when clamped tight
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    this one says 25.8mm - this would be good for standard bars correct?

    Also should I avoid the ones which are sold for MTB's?

    Ritchey adjustable stem, comes in 3 lengths, 25.8mm bar clamp. Had one when i had a bad back, strong and rigid. Just be careful when tightening, do each bolt a little then go back and keep going till there's no give. Not much love for adjustable stems on here as there a little ugly but pay no attention. You can get one for under £30.

    Cheaper on chain reaction cycles. Your sure you want 80mm length?

    Yeah that size would be fine and does'nt matter if MTB as long as it fits the bars.

    What length would you suggest? Currently the bike with road bars on it has a 90mm stem.

    Should I look to go to the 100mm adjustable stem, after all, the aero bars and pads can be set up to take the length difference into consideration?

    Cheers,
