Cut my fork a few years ago but now i wanna sit a bit higher (know it's not cool). I looked at the adjustable specialized stems bit i don't think i can get it to a zero degree stem, or can I? I don't know of any zero degree stems. Are there any options?

Thomson make one.

Not sure if you have done all you math allready, so, I always like to play around with this:

Easton makes a zero degree stem as well. Not the lightest out there.

There are many cheap ones, most made for MTB. But not many nice high end ones for road use. Easton had one, Thomson has a chunky one, another brand (can't remember. Don't see them any more) makes one...

FSA Plasma is one possibility.

An alternative is to get compact handlebars. Raises your hoods a lot.

....u will be hard pressed to find a lighter and better designed stem ( in 0 degree) than the Easton EA90. Performancebike.com is currently blowing them out for $29.

Thanks for all your tips. Especially the one about Easton stem and performancebike.com. I will ask them to ship one to the Netherlands.
