    Stoker stem identification

    I have been trying to find a stoker stem like the one pcitured in the Paketa V2 advertisement currently on the the tandem forum page. I am hoping to find one that is essentially parallel with the top tube. Can anyone identify or recommend something similar?

    It's just a very long, non-adjustable threadless stem with mild rise.

    Ahhh, trick question! No one can answer that without knowing the slope of your top tube, (if any at all). Did I pass??!!

    But TG is right, of course, it's just a threadless stem. Easiest deal is to ride on over to your LBS that has a variety of stems and slide a few on your seatpost until you find which one is right.

    Thank you both.

    Onegun,

    You half passed, now that you mention it, I believe you would need my seat tube angle as well?

    No tricks, the key word is essentially. All we have to do is get it close, then slide up and down the seatpost until the bar is at the right height.

    Don't believe I've ever been called "half-passed" before!!

    Oval Concepts makes some long, mild rise/drop, threadless stems if you run 26mm bars. The model is R700. Not sure if there is a 31.8mm variant. Note that depending on shat size seatpost your bike uses, you may need a shim (which we are using).

    This is a 140mm R700 pictured here. I know they also make a 150mm...
