I'm looking for a 25 degree rise stem in either 110 mm or 120 mm to suit a 25.4 standard bar and I can't seem to find who makes one (apart from going custom).

Anybody have any clues?

Google is a wonderful thing...took 1second flat:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=25+degree+stem

Por ejemplo:

http://actionwheels.com/site/itemdetails.cfm?ID=2031

Also, you could run a fork with more steerer tube and a shorter, lower rise stem.

Did you cut your fork steerer too short?

is 26.0mm on that one. Salsa makes the Moto Ace SUL in 25 degree rise with either the 26.0mm or 31.8mm clamp size.

This one from your search seems to have a 25.4 mm clamp though.

I could solve my problem with a riser bar but I am choosing to stick with my H Bar.

I did a Google search for " 25+degree+stem+bling" and came up with nothing

Yes and no - I am swapping over an existing fork from one frame to another.

Thanks for all your suggestions!!!!

You need to consider more than the angle - you also need to look at the height of the section that clamps to the steerer tube. Compare two stems with the same angle and you'll likely end up with two different heights when you look at distance from the base of the steerer clamp to the center of the bars. Eg. Salsa's clamp height on the Moto Ace tends to run rather tall (50+ mm), resulting in a greater height, compared with a stem of steeper angle with shorter clamp.

I just bought a 25d 25.4 Bontrager Race stem for my Midge bars: 1 and 1/8" 120x25d. Cost was $40 and it's nice!
Hope this helps.

If you need a POC shoot me a PM and I'll put you in touch with a shop that can get you the stem that you need.

Padre - Since when is a 110MM stem considered too long? :D :D :D :D

Good luck finding one. I was looking for high rise stems like that a few years back and they were pretty hard to come by then and have only gotten scarcer since.. The only thing I could find at a reasonable price back then was an anodized red 25 degree 135mm Titec stem I bought on closeout from the Titec website.

The Bontrager website list stems in that size. Any Trek dealer should be able to order them for you
