Looking for a new Stem. Recommendations?

I'm in the process of fitting myself to my 06 Felt F80. I have her pretty much set, but my 110mm stem is just a little to long and I'm locking my arms when riding. It's also making my neck a little sore being stretched out like that. I've had the bike fit and the LBS recommended that I get a new stem.

With that said I'm looking for a new stem. I'm looking to get a 90mm stem that will clamp onto a 31.8 mm bar and a 1 1/8th Threadless Steerer Tube. The one on my Felt has a 7 degree rise to it as well.

I'm looking for something similiar to what I have except in a 90mm size. I'm not all that concerned about weight as this is my first road bike and I'm just looking to get her set up for local rides and an occasional charity ride.

With those specs what would you recommend for a new stem? I'm not looking to break the bank here so I'm thinking in the $50 range if it's possible.

Thanks fo rthe help.
