    High-rise stem in 70mm?

    Howdy all,

    My steerer is cut just a bit too short - it was great with the stem I used to use, but I've gone to shorter stem...

    Anyway, I'm looking for a 70mm stem with at least a 10 degree rise. 15 or 20 degree may be better. Straitline makes one, but it's heavy (105 grams more than the Thomson).

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    Steerer is 1 1/8. I have a 25.4 bar.

    10 degrees isn't exactly a high rise stem. Could assume this is for a 1-1/8" steerer I suppose, but what bar clamp size do you need? aebike.com's stem search probably could find you some possibilities http://aebike.com/product-list/stems...c30/search.cfm

    Easton makes the EA-70 in a 70mm w/ 20 degree rise - it's such a short stem, that the rise makes it seem super tiny, but it works. I think you can get it in the 25.4 flavor.

    how much rise do you have in your bars? get new (31.8) bars and a new Hope 70mm x 25 deg stem if necessary. with such a short stem you gotta get a lot of rise for it to make the relative bar height higher in a tangible way but combined with higher rise bars you can add quite a bit of "height" to grip position

    Hope makes a 25 degree rise stem

    but I think it's only available for oversized bars.

    Consider that the effective stem length will shorten considerably at steep angles, make sure you don't actually want an 80mm 25*. Passing this on: http://alex.phred.org/stemchart/Default.aspx

    if you do end up getting a new bar and its wider that too affects relative "reach", something that pretty little internet link doesnt account for. so it all depends if you are doing stem or stem and bar change

    I use a specific bar (Syntace Vector DH) because it has a 16 degree sweep and my wrists like that a lot! It's also light for its strength, but spendy, of course. I have the same bar on all my bikes. Unfortunately, according to Syntace, it is only made in 25.4mm. Odd...

    I appreciate, and am impressed with the number of replys this thread has drawn.

    Thanks to everyone!

    Since you already have Syntace bars, you might look into their VRO system stem/bar combo...

    Or use 25.4/31.8 stem clamp spacers and have OS stem options available.

    FWIW I just ordered an Azonic XCR off of eBay.
    I can't really find any info on it so for all I know its a knockoff...
    But it was only ~$20.
    Anyway it's a 70mm with a 20 degree rise. 25.4mm clamp which I needed for my old Monkeylite XCs.

    I believe there's a few more available. Just something to think about.

    Good luck.

    Nope!

    I'm slowrider for my riding ability, I'm,just too lazy to read through all the posts to see if it's been said yet . Besides in never hurts to have more than one opinion on a product.
