Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

1" stem with 16 degree rise/drop?

I'm looking for a stem that is 1" with a 16 degree rise/drop but the catch is...it has to be SILVER. What's with all the black stems?!

Also the smaller the tubing the better. I don't care about the brand.

sorry, too lazy to point you to some myself, but really, these should be pretty easy to find. if you've got a bit of patience and leniency on stem length, scouring your neighborhood clist or ebay should solve your problems

Yeah I've been looking for 2 weeks. This is my last resort.

that is the closest to what I am looking for in terms of aesthetics but unfortunately not the right angle. Any online bike stores I should check out?

I just checked out the thomson website. Anything remotely close to what I was looking for only comes in black... Harder than it seems huh

if anyone can identify this stem it would be perfect

Ccheck out the Nitto UI-5GX. Not sure about the angles but they're silver and look good IMO.

It looks like a Ritchey with the black scrubbed.

get the silver, then get a shim to fit your 1" steerer.
