    85 mm stems

    All. Hope all is well. I think this has been covered but could not find anything in the search areas.

    I am looking for a -8degree 85 mm stem. Actually loaded makes a great looking blue ano one that would be perfect for my setup, but I cannot find them online. Anyone know of a current 85mm stem on the market today? Thanks.

    It may be obvious or not, but are you searching under mountain bike stems? If not, you should be as 85mm is definitely NOT a common road length. And forget 85mm. Thatís just a bizarre length.

    I run a Zipp 85 on My Giant revolt. WAAAY better handling for me than some stupid long thing. And I have gone well over 60mph with it.

    Loaded has an 85 as did or did, Zipp. Both are really hard to come by though. Not sure if that is because the virus made everyone bike nuts or what. Salsa used to make custom stems but doubt they do anymore. Anyway I know it is NOT common, but with the modern advent of precision bike fitting I figured if you dig a little harder you can find what you are looking for.
