Length? Rise? Steerer size? Bar size?

I would think you'd get away with a couple of mil :?
30mm is low for a stack height of a stem.

If it's too big - hacksaw

If it's too wee - spacers

:idea:

I have a black Specialized one, pretty sure its about 100mm long. Will dig it out in the morning.
Pm me your address and I'll send it out tomorrow as I'm about home tomorrow afternoon. It'll give you something to try.
Cant miss a meeting because of a stem, especially when we've all probably got every size available between us, lying idle.

I have a Ragley Stubbing you can borrow, it is only about 55mm length, but stack is around 30.5mm.
