    WCS Axis 1 1/4 stems

    Are these WCS Axis stems 1 1/4 available anywhere or from Ritchey direct? I need one in 130mm black for my Giant 2012 frame...

    At the moment we only have them available in Europe because we made them especially for Canyon. It wouldn't be hard for us to bring some in here though. Are there no other options?

    I think only Giants own stems are available in this size and perhaps an FSA one which are good but I have always used Ritchey stems and bars and want my Giant to be a bit different too So as I live in Oz could you give me a contact in Europe and I would be happy to order one direct if they would sell to me. This would make my day as I am fairly easily pleased. Thanks again for your reply Dave!

    C260, > 17 degrees, 1 1/4'' stem

    Hello Dave:

    I also need a 17 degrees 1 1/4'' stem for my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX.

    I like the new model C260.

    Do you manufactured this stem with wider angles?

    Thank you.

    Best regards.

    Also need a 1 1/4" 130mm stem

    Could I get a 1&1/4" steerer stem 130mm too?, I've just bought a Ritchey WCS Carbon Matrix 4-Axis UD Stem 130mm x 31.8mm but had to return it as was 1&1/8 size.

    Help much appreciated. Thanks.

    Sorry for going public but I can't send PMs...

    sure I have contacted them, unfortunately with the same result. No reply.
    I too am living in Europe (Slovakia) and it seems the only way to get the stem is through Canyon. From what I know it's possible to order the 4-axis stem directly from Canyon for something like 85,-euro + shipping. I wanted to skip the process.
    The new C260 stem should go for 100$ aka 100euro. I hope it will be available in 1 1/4 till the spring either from Canyon or Ritchey.

    Found this on weight weenies forum...

    I exchanged emails with Ritchey USA and they won't be releasing a 1.25" stem until 2013. They did say they spoke with Giant at Interbike about the 1.25" standard and they claimed other companies plan on moving to the 1.25" steerer.

    Quote Originally Posted by RitcheyUSA
    We currently only produce the 1.25" stem as an Original Equipment "OE"/ Manufacture Custom component for Canyon. As will all of our "OE" spec'd components we ship the entire production run of the 1.25" directly to Canyon. We do not offer the 1.25" stem as a production item for general consumers at this time.

    We were approached by Giant Bicycles at Inter-Bike this year about the 1.25" standard they are now using. As this is becoming a more widely used standard in the industry we are looking at intruding it in our line of stems for spring 2013.

    Just checked with our international office and unfortunately they have no more of these. Canyon does in fact have them and that would be the best place to try and get one. No plans for a 1 1/4" C260. It's not out of the question but not a huge priority at the moment.

    After all I decided to order the stem directly from Canyon. I went for 1-1/4, 110mm, 17/73deg. version. There was only last one in stock. The price was 78,-euro + 10,-euro shipping (EU). Should be here in 2 weeks time.

    They told me some weeks ago that they didn't have any of those stems.

    Congratulations.

    Indeed Syntace F119 is 1 1/4", but only 84/6deg. On the other hand Syntace F109 is 73/17deg., but not 1 1/4"

    Any further updates on WCS 4 Axis availability in the US? I like my Syntace but would prefer a Ritchey.

    We should have a 1 1/4" WCS 4-Axis available in the US in a few months. Sit tight.

    Dear all, I'm new to this forum (introduced myself in the G.D. forum) and this thread cought my attention.

    I managed to get hold of Ritchey WCS C260 stem in 1 1/4", I bought it myself from a Belgian website in the assumption that it was 1 1/8".

    I'm looking to get this replaced by a 1 1/8" to fit my Orbea Orca, so I have this one available. Length is 130mm, I will get pictures posted later today.

    Dennis.

    Woops, looks like I can't post any pics here yet, please find the pictures in my flickr account: there is a picture in the stream that shows a regular 1,125" stem for comparison.

    Look for "Dennis 86" on flickr.com

    Kind regards,
    Dennis.

    I'm late to this thread, but am also trying to track down a different stem for a Canyon (in the US and they won't ship directly). If anyone's interested in a swap, I have a 120mm/73 degree number and am looking for one in 130mm/84 degrees.
