I am in search of a fat aluminum stem :lol: What I mean by this is a stem with larger than normal main shaft diameter so it looks beefy.

Dimensions need to be:

130mm length
6 degree angle
Under 150g
Satin/matte black with few logos or logos that can be removed

The Zipp Service Course SL is a perfect example but only comes in glossy black. The Deda Super Zero is decent but it has an 8 degree drop and the 36mm clamp height is odd.

I want to stay away from carbon stems but I haven't found one I like the look of.

Suggestions?

Matte spraypaint perhaps? I just got done spraying an alloy Profile Design Aris stem (with matte), to get rid of the logo which was stenciled over the raw aluminium.

Get a standard Zipp Service Course and cover the stripe and logos with a paint marker.

Fat, I think you mean the diameter of shaft is 1.25 inch?
Maybe you can check Ritchey's product, as they provided the stem for Canyon 114 fork. Or Giant OD2 serial.

The old Pro Vibe stems had a "large" main shaft (at least when viewed from the side as it was sort of triangular shaped). Stack height is 44mm to give you some idea! I have one but it's a -10, they may have been available in a -6?

Specialized has a new line of S-Works stems in a -6 and -17 degree options
