    lowest rise OPI stem?

    Hi. I'm currently running a -20 degree stem on my bike in order to get the bars down where I want them. I'd like to use on of the newer OPI or XC3 stem/steerer combos but am only seeing them in -5 degree rise and up. Is that as low as that style stem goes? I'm assuming they can't be flipped do to the one piece design. Is that correct? I don't necessarily need a -20, however, I have tried a -5 stem and it just felt a bit too high. thanks.

    The new Leonardi is available in -20 and compatible with the new steerer tube of the OPI, just need to buy steerer from Dale and the stem from Leonardi.

    Thanks for the info. I think I'll just wait and see when the 2012 OPI stems come out. I need to curb my bike spending for a little anyways...

    Are these as prone to creaking as the current OPI stems ? Tempted to pick one up to drop front end a little more and solve the chronic creak my Flash has.
