15 degree mtb stem

I'm looking to buy a 15 degree or larger 90 to 100 mm mtb stem in a 31.8. Easton site says they make on in a 20 degree but I can't seem to find one. Thompson's 15 degree are for the 25.4 handlebars. Maybe bontraeger, I think they have a 17 degree. I just haven't been able to find a 4 bolt front cap upperend stem yet. Can anyone help with a link?

Kind of a similar question: i just installed a 15 degree Bontrager stem on my bike. The stock one was flat (0 degrees?). The LBS only had the one i bought and a 20 degree one. I'm having buyers remorse thinking i should have gotten the 20 degree one. will 5 degrees make THAT much difference? Don't want to go with adjustable since I'm nervous that with all my rough riding it may fail.

I don't think your riding will make the difference at a guess; just the angle doesn't say a lot, though. As to strong adjustable setups, look into the Syntace VRO system.
