looking for a short and cheap threadless stem
i need some help finding a suitable stem. i found i was reaching too much, so i moved me seat forward. now i'm too far over the bb and putting too much weight on my hands. i feel like i can't pedal no-handed. before i was sliding off the front of the seat when i had my hands on the bullhorns. (if its not my stem thats the problem, let me know)
1 1/8" 26mm(i think) clamp
need something shorter than 90mm hopefully around $15. don't really care about the rise, but something close to whats on it now would be great.
thanks for any leads.

Yes they are out there. BBB and a few other's make them in 60 mm lengths for a 26 mm clamp diameter and Oval make one at 50 mm long for a 26 mm clamp diameter. Don't know about price though but they aren't realy expensive ones. I know you can get cheaper, generic stems at 50 mm long for 25.4 clamp diameter (MTN). If your lucky your bars may be 25.8 mm and they may just squeeze in.
thanks i'll look into those.
i also found this
comes in 60, 70, and 80mm. i'm not really sure how short i should go.
