The stack of the FSA is much lower, around 25mm (more clamp pressure) compared to the 40mm Ritchey.

I exchanged emails with Ritchey USA and they won't be releasing a 1.25" stem until 2013. They did say they spoke with GIant at Interbike about the 1.25" standard and they claimed other companies plan on moving to the 1.25" steerer.

[quote=RitcheyUSA]We currently only produce the 1.25" stem as an Original Equipment "OE"/ Manufacture Custom component for Canyon. As will all of our "OE" spec'd components we ship the entire production run of the 1.25" directly to Canyon. We do not offer the 1.25" stem as a production item for general consumers at this time.

We were approached by Giant Bicycles at Inter-Bike this year about the 1.25" standard they are now using. As this is becoming a more widely used standard in the industry we are looking at intruding it in our line of stems for spring 2013.[/quote]

I don't think its 25mm it says on the site that its 35mm stack height. 5mm won't be that much of a difference don't you think? I'm in a dilemma here for I'm trying to order a Giant TCR frame which is now in 1 1/4" steerer and the case is that giants OD stem will only be available end of November or early December according to the distributor. Syntace are way too expensive for me and the wait kills me. I'm trying to contact Canyon if I can buy the Ritchey stem thru them.

You can buy the Ritchey's already in the UK - I had sourced one from a tandem shop when I was looking at getting an emergency Canyon!

Im looking for an alternative to the Giant stem/bar combo for my Propel. When will companies be rolling these out, and are any of them already?

ritchey produces them for canyon, but they are hard to impossible to find aftermarket

The Giant stems are fairly light and seem very stiff. Considered buying a Ritchey but liked the Giant a bit more FWIW.
