I really like the Velo-Orange and Soma Tall stack stems, 75 mm stack compared to approx. 40mm for the usual threadless stem. They give you some extra height, but with the 17 deg. angle it makes the stem just about parallel with the surface the bike is on. However, they are not recommended for forks with carbon steerer tubes.
