Picked up our new (used) Santana Triplet

....last weekend in San Diego. I installed the child stoker kit yesterday and we're ready to take it out for a ride tomorrow. Should be fun. Having had a quad for several years that we rode with my older sons back in the early 2000's, we're looking forward to family time with our younger son that is just turning 6.

At any rate, I'm looking for a 1 1/4 threadless stem for this thing. I need an 11-13cm with minimal rise. The stem that's on this bike is an 8-9ish that has a huge rise? I'd buy the stem I need outright, or trade if someone was interested in such. I also have another 1 1/4 stem that is an 8-9, but only has a 15ish degree rise.

I have a 13 with a rise of what appears to be 15 degrees, if I'm measuring it right. [Holding the part that goes on the steerer vertical, the main body goes up about 3.3 cm over the 13 cm length. Arc sin(3.3/13) = 14.7] Not sure what qualifies as minimal. This is taken off an older Santana.
