Can anyone suggest somewhere that can make me a stem?
Steel I'm guessing.
Anyone had one made? Cost?

Just had a look at Kinetic cycles in Glasgow.
Not building them at the moment but he quotes £150.
Can see them being pretty labour intensive for what they are.
Like Rob asked, what you looking for that you can’t find?

Thought you would have known that Rob :lol:


The old 1.56" 'Dale stems are a bugger to find in shorter lengths, or with a decent amount of rise, I had thought getting one made would be a relatively cost effective option compared to locating a suitable original stem.

Closest I can find is this 90mm 20 degree stem... https://www.tritoncycles.co.uk/componen ... tem-p17867

But I'd still like one shorter, and more rise.... Ideally.

That was the shortest I could find when I had my Delta V.
They did make an 80mm and 60mm x 20deg but pretty impossible to find.

Have you thought about these instead?

Are you trying to say I have long arms? :lol:

I've ordered one of the 90mm/20° stems, I'll see how I get on with that.
It seems a custom stem is out of budget (it's more than I paid for the whole bike! :lol:).

Received an email the other day to say that the Halloween-X event has been cancelled due to Coronavirus restrictions :(
