Dear Weight Weenies,

I recently had a fit session and I would benefit from a 0 degree stem.

Unfortunately, I have a 1.25" steerer tube and there seems to be few/no options for that size in a 100 mm.

Any ideas or any manufacturers you would recommend?

Thank you for your time!

0 degree stems are rare enough as it is in the normal diameter, unfortunately.

I'd also be interested in getting hold of one in 1.25 size, if anyone has any suggestions.

if it's is not an option to have a +ve stem, have a look at Specialized riser bars, they come in 15mm and 25mm versions

A -6° stem and 10mm spacer will achieve essentially the same effect. Probably look much nicer, too.

Do you have the room to use a normal stem, flipped over to have a +6 degree angle? If you can lower the stem enough, that will get you where you need to be as far as bar height. You'll need to play around with the length to get the reach you need but if you look up one of the stem reach calculators online you can figure it out.

It looks like Thomson offers a 0 degree 1.25" stem in the X4 mountain bike variety, but I was hoping for a road stem if possible.

Thank you for the suggestions everyone!
