Do they exist? Can't seem to find one.

Thanks !

  • Sorry do you mean in relation to the floor or the steerer?

    If you flip a 17 degree stem that will give you zero degree rise as the steerer is at 17 degrees

    ETA - Thomson do a 0 degree stem (ie one that is the same flipped as unflipped)

    Thanks. Not sure sure. My current one is a 6 deg stem (Deda Zero 1), and I have it flipped for extra bar height. I need a slightly longer stem but don't want more height. If anything the bars could be dropped slightly (but not too much).

    Hope that makes some sense :oops:
  • Do you have any spacers beneath your stem currently? You may be able to drop a 5mm spacer and have the bars at the same height with a 10mm longer stem of the same variety

    Thanks, I did think of that option, but think it might look odd :oops:

    Why not mess around with this really useful website to work out what you want:

    http://alex.phred.org/stemchart/Default.aspx

    Work out the height stack of your spacers (most steerer angles are about 73 deg btw) so once you have entered your current values (of reach, angle and stack) then you can just play about with stack height (spacers), length (reach) and angle of stem to see where that puts the end/handlebars relative to your current setup...
  • Good link thanks :D

    Yeah thanks for that link, very hepful.

    Looks like I need at 0 degree stem... not many about it seems. Might go for the EA90. Its a shame the one in the classifieds is white.
