Tubes with regular short stem?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tubes with regular short stem?

I can't seem to be able to find tubes with regular short stems, new "short" is 48mm which is about twice too long, with my rims they keep snapping or get ripped from the tube and they're not the thinnest of rims (cxp elite). They used to make them way shorter, does any company still makes short stems for 23c tubes?

Bike tires direct has one with a 32mm stem. Also some others less than 48. Personally I have not had any trouble with the longer stems other than they look a bit silly on a shallow rim.
