    Low Stack Stems

    I did some searching but could not find any recent info on this topic so here is the question. What stems are out there with a low stack/insertion height? The steerer tube on my fork is too short and I think this might be my best option. I already have a zero stack headset. I need the stack height to be as close to 30mm as possible.

    Spank spike has a really low stackheight. Might be worth looking into a lower stackheight headset as well, even ZS headsets can come down a little lower with topcap swaps.

    How long of a stem do you need?

    The Funn Funnduro stem is 30mm and looks good too. Had the same problem when I purchased a fork from flea bay.

    less than complete insertion isn't a problem. You can go with a 35mm stack height.
