I'm looking for a stem to fit my Bontrager- the front end is a little too high so I'm trying to lower the bars a little. I've got a Syncros stem at the moment which I'd be happy to swap for something as good- between 130 and 140mm, and preferable zero degrees or a small rise, but a good quality. It's a 1" aheadset style steerer. Whaddaya got? :D

Thanks everyone- I realised yesterday that the bars I'm using are riser bars with a brace, so the usual stems won't fit. I need a stem with a bolt on or hinged front section, like a Syncros. Anyone got something like this spare?

That would be good- I've got an X-Lite stem which is 1 1/8" so could use that temporarily, but I'd rather find a more permanent solution. PM me with cost and payment details and I'll PP gift you the money :)

Still looking though....

Interested in the x-lite stem, if you sell after finding something suitable :wink:
