Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

replacing Kilo stem.....

the degree of rise/ drop on the stock Kilo TT stem is too much me (too high/ too low) so I was looking to replace with something with less of an angle. How does this seem?

The Soma stem is 45mm. Anyone know the size of the stock stem? At work now, can't check myself. Thanks!

From the website, the stock kilo has 0 degrees rise, the stipper has 8, and the soma has 7. I'm new to bikes. Is a 45mm stack height the height of the clamp? If so you can adjust that with removing spacers right? I tried measuring the length of my stripper stem and got 90 or 100mm (I got 95 but i must have measured wrong?) Again I'm new, so maybe take my word with a grain of salt. I was thinking of buying this stem too. Tell me how it goes.
