I need at least two 100mm length stems with 26mm bar clamp and high rise angle (30-40 deg). For 1-1/8" steerer.
These are surprisingly difficult to find. When found they usually have 2-bolt bar clamps. I have never used a 2-bolt clamp and have heard that they "always" creak and you have to live with it since you can't grease. I don't want creaks. I suppose a shim made from old inner tube would prevent this, if worse came to worst??
These are for nice road bikes. I don't want to get too pricey, but I already have one Dimension stem (pretty cheap) which fits my parameters and it weighs a ton.
I'd really like to make a list of companies who make stems of this description and then I can shop, compare weight and price, etc. So please list them on here and also give your opinions about 2-bolt bar clamps. Thanks.
