Hey all, I need a new road bike stem as my current one is too long at 130mm and I think I need 90mm to 100mm (arms stretched too far forward and back ache between my shoulder blades).

However, I am confused as to the difference between mountain bike and road bike stems

I dont want to spend a great amount so can anyone recommend a new stem (under £20 or so)?
