    80mm stems (1 1/8)

    So I'm looking for a new stem in 80mm version, so far the only ones that I found in that length are the syncros AM stem, the Answer Rove AM stem and the Truvativ aka...

    Do you guys know any other options?
    Guess out of the 3 stems above I would go with the Answer stem, since I'm using 725mm bars and the answer looks like it has a slightly wider clamp, might only appear this way on pictures though.

    Thomson X4 comes in 80mm versions. Somehow it doesn't seems to be as common as their other lengths.

    I recently decided to get an 80mm stem. I went with a Ritchey WCS 4-axis 44 -> http://www.ritcheylogic.com/dyn_prodfamily.php?k=355371

    I'm using the AKA stem in 70mm with 710mm bars. No issues for me and I'm 215lb. What are your concerns?

    I second your choice for the Rove. the wider the clamp the better.
    Running bars from 710 - 760mm. Any stems with less than 50mm wide clamp width just arent very confidence inspiring imo.

    I'm using a 80mm Sunline V1 stem. Only $45 at huck n roll, or wait for it on chainlove and get it for @$30. Its a nice stem and a good price right now.

    thanks for the input guys, the sunline V1 AM stem looks pretty good too, specially at that price, I can only find it in grey though, not in black...

    I didn't know Thomson X4 comes in 80mm but the clamp on those is pretty standard too right? I like the wider clamp on the Rove AM, so guess I'll end up going with that one...
    I don't have any experience with any answer products yet though, fingers crossed.

    no experience with the thomson. people here love them but i think they get a little over hyped because of the name. but i dont think you can go wrong with answer.
