This is about the last thing I need to decide on for this particular project and I can't make up my mind.
I have 4 stems in my parts box now that will fit, but not sure which one 'works' on the bike so I thought i'd get opinions from here.
One thing to bare in mind that whichever one I choose will be powder coated yellow to match the frame. I want something that fits and will be nice to ride too. Anyway here's the pics:
First up is a 135mm off a Stumpie with integrated cable hanger
Next a generic low rise 115mm taken from an old Muddyfox, no cable hanger so I'll have to add one.
Next is a higher rise Zoom about 110mm extension also needs a cable hanger to go with it.
Finally is a higher rise 130mm extension stem taken from my bros old Dawes, built in hagner in this too.
Of course the option is for none of the above and to go for a 120mm zero rise or shorter like on Gravymonsters Avanti:
Whatever I choose though will need to be a skinny cr-mo nothing in Alu as they will be too chunky for the skinny frame and finding something 1" is quite hard.
