I'd go for a Race face or Pace CNC Square stem, as the later round profile Pace stems were really, really prone to snapping and bending (I bent 3 and I'm a lightweight) RF were standard equipment, or find one of the integral stem/steerers, they worked really well.
I've put one of the Short Pace stems on my F7 and it looks the business and handle well.
I'd love an early one like this in 16! mines a red 97.

Thanks for the warning. I really do like the Pace stems but they're not cheap and I'm not looking to spend too much on this one if I can help it so I may continue the RaceFace theme. Can you get a silver 27.0 RF seatpost - only ever seen XY's in black ?

Yes I've had a few XY's in 27.00mm, when you ride it, you'll want to spend more on it! They ride really well.
