    Low drop threaded stem?

    Where can I find a 70-75 degree or greater (heading towards 90 degree or horizantal) drop stem for my threaded fork. Difficulty is I'd like it if at all possible to be japanesse. Business cycles have the Nittto but the drop is a little to radical. Any ideas?

    if you want the stem to actually look parallel to the top tube (assuming a non-slanted tube), then you will want something like a 72-75 degree stem (for most head tubes). a 90 degree will have rise. in any case, you should have no problem at all finding such a thing. it's the most common type of quill stem. look into the nitto pearl stem - very nice.
