I currently have a KCNC arrow in 110mm -17d which weights 133g.

I may be looking for a lighter stem in 100mm and -17d. I want to keep it below 120g, not too expensive and mostly black.

I have found the ritchey WCS 4-axis and the Syntace F109 but the later seems hard to find in North America or online at decent price, shipped to Canada.

What other options am I missing? The extralite etc are way out of my budget.

i know it's in the road forum, but it's worth looking at, nonetheless.

thanks, did search and read that. That is mainly why I narrowed it down to syntace F109 or ritchey

Trying to find a way to get a 100m Syntace F109 over here... otherwise I'll go for a Ritchey, they both seem to have a similar weight

Ah I need a 100mm

Damn I'd prefer the syntace over the ritchey

or would there be any -20 degree stem?

I see there is the fizik cyrano but not much info on it's weight...

Any other possibilities? 90mm, 100-110g range, -17d or more agressive

3t arx team comes in -17 and should be within your weight. I have a 90mm off the bike I'll weigh tomorrow.

Deda has a 70° stem called "Nine", no idea about (actual) weight though.

thanks guys

sounds like I found something interesting that would help me replicate my previous fit more accurately, the ritchey c260 -25d stem
