Did they ever make 130mm?

If so, I want one! I replaced my 120mm with a 130mm EA90, but only because I couldn't see 130mm on their website.

They flex like fcuk in the longer lengths.. Any thing over 100mm is pretty noddle-esk I'd say they are aware of this hense the discontinuation..

From their facebook page looks like they are going to get a new one out.. so maybe it has to do with that?

Interesting. I hope my 100mm isn't destined for some sort of catastrophic failure!

12 deg: wowza. I need to sell my 12 cm and replace it with a 10 cm, but it's 26 mm, not 31.8 mm. It's 8 degrees which since I've flipped my stem is about all I can handle.

Been using there 90 and 100 mm stem for years now and never had one issue with them. Can't comment on the longer lengths personally, but I know many who used the 120 mm and didn't mentioned anything about flex (for the record, they are not heavyweight sprinters putting out huge wattage).

+1! Best news I've had this week.

I didn't notice any flex in the 120 I was using.

bummer. 12 degrees is too much for the bikes I own that I'd want a WW stem for.

Finally when I get the money to buy one and now they're not available... :noidea:

Hmm...a 130mm alternative?

The thing is no one else is offering a 12deg stem to my knowledge, the only thing is the Specialized adjustable that would look shonky on thinner tubed bikes.

I need to lower my bars even though the current Deda Stem is slammed and is -8, I have tried a -17 and it llooks awkward, the -12 will be perfect (i think) so hurrah
for making something noone else does. I am thinking this new stem might be driven by the needs of the 29er mtb crowd non?
