Just bought an on/off Stoic stem, the one they use on Mondraker bikes. I got the 20mm version. It is almost vertical, and works best with longer top tube bikes. I find it particularly helpful to get the front end up higher for us tall guys, since it seems that head tube length is the biggest fitting issue, at least for me.
I'm using it on an XL Kona Process (7ft tall) and it makes a huge difference in both uphills and downhills. The extra inch or so of height is the biggest factor, but the short horizontal length also miss it much easier to lift the front end. If any tall guys are trying to squeeze onto an XL frame, this can help...
