Looking for a threadless stem that meets these criteria

Hi all,

I'm looking for a threadless stem (1 1/8 steerer), in chrome or silver, with a 25.4 handlebar clamp diameter and a very short reach (no greater than 50 mm, preferably even shorter if possible). Does such a beast exist? I've been searching for quite a while and haven't found anything. The closest I've gotten is Dimension's 60mm reach stem. Rise does not matter to me, though I'd prefer no rise if possible. Thanks if anyone can provide some guidance on this search!

if you widen your search criteria to ď25.4mm or widerĒ and be prepared to use a shim, youíll have more to choose from. Velo Orange have Al 31.8-25.4 shims for $12 and nice silver stems down to 40mm for $35

Not exactly what you want but have a look at the Discord Chromo Peeper stem . The offset is 30mm but in a 31.8 handlebar clamp. As others above suggested a shim would be needed. Since it is handmade, it is priced accordingly.

Handlebar shims work really well. Use one the color of your handlebar and it's virtually invisible.
