Stem -10 degree, 110mm, sub 120g, sub $50-60 ?

I look on Ebay and find nothing sub 120g. Anyone have knowledge where to look? Of course, 28.6*31.8mm.
I would stay away from (cheap) carbon, prefer alloy, but If I don't find it I'm willing to try that cheap too. Not that many choice of -10 degree.

Pro PLT stem and add some titanium bolts. I paid less than $30 for my stem used on eBay and then maybe another $10 for black ti bolts. My 120mm stem comes out to 124g

Nothing much in old thread for me :)

Are the stem bolts interchangeable generally? I have 120mm stem with Ti bolts, so If they would fit in that Pro PLT ... I could go that way.

Yeah, nothing special about the stem bolts in this (or most) cases.

I have been running a Lity 100mm 6° stem (97gr) for 2 years, it is actually an excellent stem and I pay 39 euros for it.

Yes, no -10°, but I slightly revised my approach in the meantime.
I may go with Deda Superleggero. It's -8° but has 6mm lower stack height. It would be almost the same.

Idea is to get handlebar lower (no spacers left to remove) and to get stem slope in same degree with top tube slope :)
After all that link to the old thread may be of some help actually :oops: 8)

Beware, the stack height you refer to on the Deda may actually be the clamping stem-to-steerer only. In my experience I moved from a Ritchey (42mm) to a Thomson (36mm) with no difference in handlebar height. The 6mm difference was taken off the top of the stem clamping.

Extralite Hyperstem -12 + 4mm of spacers (same stack as -10).
It's easily sub 100g, this option is not cheap, but it's sub 100g

Would be looking slightly off on my frame. 7-10 degree only.
I planned -17 even (maybe would be too low for me, maybe not), but would be looking ... no good. I want functionality and look as well.

Ok, thanks :thumbup: I would look into it more carefully

So the PLT is the best of the current options?

If you ask me ... I don't know yet. It's apparently 133g and I would needed some Ti bolts for closing to cca. 120g.

Deda Superleggera looks like better option (and I finded one piece locally for a decent price) but I'm now more than puzzled with claimed degree. I founded this https://weightweenies.starbike.com/foru ... p?t=150541 This is some cca. 2 degree difference and both are "8 degree". Obviously not.
