72-76 degree stem - where from?

I need a 1 1/8 31.8mm 130mm stem that when matched with my head tube angle of 72degrees will give practically no rise. (i.e horizontal to the ground)

I can't seem to find a stem out there though that offers this? Maybe Im having a Google brain fart but if anyone knows of a decent cheapish stem out there, let me know.

Thanks!

    You could try the specailized one with the shims that make it adjustable.

    so what are you looking for ?

    try a 17 degree stem. that will give you 1 deg rise.

    Using stemchart http://alex.phred.org/stemchart/Default.aspx I basically need the above stem to offer the same match geometry for my other road bike which is much more aggressive.

    That is why I hate stems. Manufacturers contradicting each other.

    Cheers though.

    Some state angle, some state rise only which means you then have to calculate from your headtube angle, some don't state anything apart from length. Retailers are to blame to be fair.
