I am looking for a “svelte” -17 degree 120mm stem for a traditional geo steel frame. The steerer is a modern 1 1/8 and I’ll be using 31.8 bars. I am currently using a Deda Superleggero which is slim and beautiful, but doesn’t come in a -17. The frame has skinny steel tubes so I don’t want anything too chunky. Any thoughts/ ideas would be appreciated as the mainstream options are underwhelming. Also, price is not a consideration and weight should be sub 120g.
Ordered and now rethinking
A debadged Kalloy Uno honestly doesn't look bad on a steel frame. They are cheap as hell but light and well made. I have a -17 on my custom Gunnar and it goes well with the tube sizing. I have a slightly sloping TT and may go to a -12 to better match it though.
