What length?
I've got this brand new (and BOXED) LOOK stem in red which has a fairly decent rise to it. It's 90mm in length 1 & 1/8 steerer fitment but comes with 1" shim as standard.
If of interest you can have it for £17.50 including insured postage

oh right you mean spacers then, like these (except in 1" of course) which fit over the steerer and lift the stem up the shaft? http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Spank_Tweet_Tweet_Steerer_Spacer/5360046575/?referid=frogoog&source=googleps

If so I have some alloy 1", how much rise do you need?

Hi.
Hope I am not clouding the issue here but do you mean a thing that looks like the quill of a quill stem that allows you to fit a a head stem on the top of it. I have one that fits in to a standard inch threaded steerer tube and allows you to fit a 1 1/8 a head stem with the top about 100mm above the top nut of the headset. it simply converts an 1 1/8 a head stem into a one inch quill stem with the subsequent extra quill height. If so I have no further use for this one and was going to list it with some other bits I no longer need. It is a black one however but the paint would remove and polish easily enough
Regards
Peter

It's called a "quill converter" - I have one on my Pioneer and it's top notch, you'll just need to put a few spacers under it if you're going to raise it.
