Just got mine, can confirm that the stack height is 40mm, weight came in at 102.4g as well. I'll probably end up tuning with Ti bolts and taking some acetone to logos, but initial impressions are positive!

I can´t seem to find them with 17/73 degrees on ebay. Does anyone know, if they offer that option?

Do Kalloy make some kind of light seatpost to match the stem?

Oops should have included that, 100mm stem. I've only seen this stem in the 7 degree rise.

Doesn't look like there's a matching seatpost (from the quick search that I did on ebay). There's an "Uno" model but it seems like a pretty standard heavy alloy seatpost.

Anyone know if the clamp is designed to be fully closed on one side so that the gap only remains on the other side? Or do I have to even out the gaps?

Couldn't find anything on the website.

I purchased one of these in 60mm for my 29er from joeyangair on fleabags. It came in a simple plastic bag with Kalloy mini manual attached via a sparkly string. Anyways, in the instructions it specifically tells you to tighten the top two bolts fully to mesh with the stem body. The face plate and body have shaped portions designed to mesh with each other. Honestly, the quality appears top knock with very precise forging throughout with constantly varying wall thickness. Reading the included literature it looks as if they've done their homework. I'm really not surprised as Kalloy have been in the business for a long time and clearly have lots of experience. Best deal on stems out there. Just glad I stumbled upon them.

Cool, thanks for the confirmation - I thought I had seen that info somewhere.

BTW, I also removed the graphics on mine, wiped right off with acetone, 3 minute job.

I'm considering one of these stems but it's for a TT bike and the stem would be clamping a set of aerobars with extensions. How secure is the handlebar clamp on this Kalloy stem? It needs to be very secure and I am unconvinced by the Kalloy's two part faceplate design.

I used carbon friction paste on the bars and clamping is very secure already at low torque.
