I want to lower my bars a bit so I am looking for a budget lightweight -17 degree stem. I prefer carbon but the ones I see like this on ebay are 6 degree like i have now, any suggestions ?

Thx

Ritchey WCS, 3T Arx, they can be found on sale on Amazon, Ebay and similar. Carbon stems are often heavier than Aluminium ones. Only ever used the Ritchey, with no complaints whatsoever, but I seem to be easy on gear. Except cleats.

3T Arx team. No particular reason to go carbon as poster above me says.

UNO stem from ebay. About 25 bucks @110 grams for a 110mm stem.

for that matter, the 3t arx pros aren't that much heavier than the teams (and you can swap the bolts for ti anyway)

I have the ARX Team. Blacked out. The 3T LTD carbon stems aren't available in -17 deg ,AFAIK. As said, no need to go carbon. I always liked alloy stems ,because alloy can be CNC'd much slimmer and results in a "better" design

The Arx Team or the Arx Pro are both great. Another option is the Zipp Service Course SL, which you can find cheap if you do a bit of shopping around.
