Hello,

Does anybody know where I can get the new 100g Ritchey WCS stem in 11cm and 73° (not oversized....standart clamp).

No shop could offer me this stem.

Thanks for help!

Effe

My experience with the WCS stem was that is did not weigh anything close to advertised. I got a F99 instead and I'm happy with it. My 13cm WCS was 137g.

FYI I have a 1inch 13cm WCS sitting on a shelf if anyone needs one PM me.

the new 2004 stem weighs really a lot less than the older models. 110g real in 11cm and 73° are possible. Then I can also tune the stem with ti-bolts. So I can achieve 105g. I would save round about 30g.

my stem has to be parallel to the top-tube because if not, ernesto colnago would kill me :roll:

Wouldn't Ernesto Colnago kill you for using a Ritchey stem? :P

125g is manufactures weight for an 11cm size, so your weight of 137g for a 13cm is normal. I have an 11cm and it weighs 128g, pretty close.

Also I have weighed the new setem in oversized and 11cm, weighs in at 115g.

Is Ritchey the only one with a -17 stem? Or are there any others, in 26,0 clamp, 1 1/8"?
