0 degree road stem.

Hello,
I'm looking for a 0 degree road stem in full black, 100 or 110mm, but can't find a decent one for road use.
Any reccomendations?

Thankyou!

I'm guessing you mean a horizontal stem when it's fitted to the steerer so they could be listed as -17 stems. You've got the Pro Vibe as one which probably looks as good as any or the Thomson X2 as a cheaper option.

Easton EA90 and Thomson X4 are both available in 0 degree. I have the Easton one and it is a nice stem.

Assuming you mean a -17 degree stem, Uno makes one that is pretty light. Around 108 grams in a size 100mm.
I run a 110mm Uno stem and have had no issues. It’s lighter than the 3T stem it replaces.

The Uno logos come off easy with acetone btw

I mean 0 degree at the stem, not a stem that looks horizontal, so not a - 17

As said, Easton and Thomson are both solid stems in 0 degree. I have one of each.

If you want to go fully in, you could get a Moots Ti stem in 0 degree. There are a couple of them on eBay right now. But if you are looking for black then I'd recommend the Thomson X4. Not exactly light, but extrememly well manufactured.

Enve's new aero stem has various degrees of slope. -7 or -17, +2.5 or -2.5, -12 all with one stem.

Specialized had their multi-stem that come with wedges that let you adjust them in 2º increments up to 4º in either direction. I have one that's a +/-4º stem that can be set anywhere between 0 and +/-8º. I have one that's 100mm and black with black lettering aside from a white S logo on the front.

I did a quick look to see if I can find a link, but it doesn't look like they are making the model I have anymore. Might be worth a look online though.

Might just be me, but I’d rather ride a -6 with a small stack of spacers than a goofy looking 0 degree stem.

I think you need to try harder at this weight weenie thing :p

Okay, why not size down on the frame and ride a +17deg stem then?

There you go! Demonstrate your commitment to the scale.

Actually, given the same bar height, a flipped 17° stem would have a much better load path than a level one sitting on a stack of spacers, so it'd be stiffer as well as lighter. I'm pretty sure a 0° stem offers the best load path of all, so there's that.

Specialized has argued that a -17 degree stem is going to be more aero than anything else, so they are pushing people to use the flat stem with an riser bar. (The stem looks great, but the bar looks ridiculous.)

I've recently started using 0 degree stems because I can get the bar where I need it while minimizing the spacers under the stem. On one bike, the stem is slammed in that set up. The other thing is that while the stem is angled up, it doesn't really look like a positive rise stem.

For WW, EA90 is the way to go between those two. :)

(I have EA90 -6 in both 100 and 110)
