Cinelli stems are 26.4 and reasonably plentiful albeit at the dearer end of the used stem market

Don't think I've got any Cinelli that short, mine are all 11.5/12/12.5.

I have a new Cinelli 9.5cm black stem. Short enough?

I have one, but a slight snag...

Pretty sure it's around 80-90mm. And if memory serves me it's close to perfect condition. The snag is that it's missing the pinch bolt. Although, if you already have a Cinelli one that's too long then you could use it's bolt. Otherwise, the correct bolt is probably as hard to find as the stem so not worth the hassle!

I'll double check when home later.

Found it... It's even shorter! marked 70. More like 75 c-to-c. Rather unusual in such a short length. I think I used this or an 80mm once. Makes for some quite 'responsive' feeling steering. Or maybe that was the forks! My plan had been to buy a scruffy cheap one for a bolt. Sometimes Hilary Stone has scruffy ones super cheap, £12 or £15. It is in pretty nice condition, but one scuff to the front top. Could polish it, or fine used as is. If you might be interested, let me know and I can take a couple of photos at the weekend.
