Road stem for 1 1/4" Canyon

I've just bought a shorter stem for my Canyon road bike, but it seems that all road bikes use 1 1/8" forks except Canyon.
It looks like the size is 1 1/4. The on-line shops (under road bikes) don't even give an option for the larger size. Except for chunky mountain bike ones.
Does anyone know where I can find a lightweight / quality stem for a road bike that is 1 1/4?
The present stem is a Ritchey WCS 120mm. I'm after a 90mm.

Cheers.

    Yes, I saw that. I had a very bad experience buying from Canyon. If I can avoid buying from them again, I will. This stem is only one of the issues I have had with them.
    There is also an option from 'bike discount'. Also from Germany and cheaper.

    If I can buy here in the UK, it would be much better. I am surpised it so hard to find.

    Ritchey, Syntace, Giant, Spesh (with their shims removed) do 1 1/4 stems.

    Take a look at some of the German websites like bike-discount.de etc
