Handlebar Stem with 0 degree angle.

Can anyone point me towards an alloy handlebar stem with 0 degree angle? It's a stem for a training bike so not looking for a top spec stem, just something that will do the job. A persistent sore neck dictates a move away from a stem with a +/- angle. Searched the usual online vendors but couldn't find something suitable. Thanks.

    Thomson do 0 degree stems, marked up as MTB, but in a good range of lengths. They're on the pricy side though. https://www.wiggle.co.uk/thomson-elite- ... -mtb-stem/

    Why do you feel you need a 0 degree stem though? You can get to the same height by adding/removing a spacer and possibly flipping the stem.

    I managed to pick up an Easton EA90 off ebay they are rare though. Seem to be more Thomsons around and they are a very solid stem. The bolts rust well though so make sure you grease 'em up as I found to my cost.
    Specialized Venge S Works
    Cannondale Synapse
    Enigma Etape
    Genesis Flyer Single Speed


    Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last...

    Why not change the bolts to good quality stainless?

    Specialized do an adjustable shim one which will deal with 0. If you're looking for 120 or 130cm let me know as I have two which I was using to dial in my fit.
