As as foreword - I did use the search function but it didn't answer my question.

Basically I like a super low cockpit, am bit of a stretching nutter and are quite flexible resultantly. Have removed headset cap and currently have a -6 degree (100mm) stem and want to go -17.

However, the only such stem I can find is the 3T Pro which is 150g for 100mm. So in taking advantage of your collective weight-weenism knowledge :wink: , is there any aftermarket brands that have WW models?

I agree with the Ritchey 4 Axis WCS with titanium bolts and washers from Toronto Cycles at that length should be about 110 grams. -17, light and stiff.

The Bontrager RXL stems are very light and strong for the money. 123g in a 100mm -17

Bumping this. I've found the Procraft prc st1 -17 that comes in at 102g for 100mm. Now Extralite comes with a -12 degree stem at 82g for 100mm. Does anybody have any more alternatives at around 100g?
