Still looking for an inexpensive non-adjustable stoker stem ...
... is that too much to ask for?
Saw these about a month ago on WebCyclery in Bend, OR (who appear not to be carrying them anymore or maybe out of stock):
Made by a company called Edge that makes Trial Bikes.
Right now we are using an Easton EA-50 140mm@6° stem.
Brightspoke has this online stem length calculator
. Using the following input; 6° stem angle, 107° head tube angle, 140mm length the stem length calculates out to 137.4mm reach. I have verified the accuracy by measuring. Input the numbers for the Edge stems and I found these results; The 175mm stem effective reach is 170.5mm and the 185mm stem has a reach of 175.9mm when used as stoker stems.
Both of those are longer than I wanted to go, their next size down but me at exactly the same reach I already have. I don't mind going a bit on the long side but I am not sure how well these stems are made or work. I have tried to find a Deda Newton 31 in their 150mm 8° configuration but have so far been unsuccessful.
Is there anyone out there who has examined the Edge stems in person? Are there any alternatives in the 150-160mm range?
