Hi all, just received a lovely Syntace 1 1/8" 75mm 26.0mm stem,not a mark on it and really properly light!

Unfortunately I'm a complete dimwit and need either 25.4mm or ideally 31.8mm as it's for the mountain bike!

Anybody have one they'd like to swap? Could go a few mil longer if that helps.

Cheers!

All on the radar but nothing quite right :( close but no cigar! :lol:

Still keeping your bits in the car expectantly, hopefully there'll be a ride we can both make it too soon... 8)

Thanks for the links!

steep for a little bit of alu I know, but if you really love that stem?

edit, 31.8? surely that's heavier? :lol:

Cheers Al, I do really like it, all 87grams of it! I'll have to check whether they're built to the same strength as the other sizes though.

Really want 31.8mm of the same - or an equivalent Ritchey - as I've got some bars I want to use...

Crazy expensive for a shim, but less than the Nitto I had to buy for the road bike and that was utter rubbish! Thought they were a good btand :?
