Looking for opinions or other recommendations for a stiff but weight weenie suitable stem in 70mm flavour, 0-5 deg rise would be best, just can't seem get my new bike to ride as well as the one that was taken from me!

This is currently the front runner,

I run the Ibis 70mm stem tuned with Ti bolts = 91 grams. Very stiff and trouble free. This is also the stem Ibis specs on their AM Mojo HD. Stem is $45.00 USD and 6 Ti bolts from Torontocycles.com are about $15.00.

These stem threads keep coming up--there was one just last week. Search the forum.

This Kalloy Uno is somewhat popular among us here. It's around or under 100g, $32 on Ebay and so far no one has reported any problems. Many mainstream stems are rebranded Kalloys.

Kalloy's 70 stem has worked on my Ibis with no problems!
