    Having a hard time finding a silver stem.....

    I've found plenty of stems with 1 1/8 clamp, I want 1inch, and....

    four bolt face plate
    1 inch steerer tube
    silver
    90 or 100mm
    5-7degree

    I sure wish the Nitto stem wasn't 1 1/8.

    Anything out there? This is for a very sexy custom steel frame, so those Profile stems seem sort of out-of-place.

    Just get a spacer, most 1 inch stems aren't even just 1 inch they are simply 1 1/8 with a shim.

    No way man. I'm not putting a shim in there and klunking up my custom engraved top cap. I have a shim on my beater, and that just isn't good enough for my custom rig.

    I'll keep my black Ritchey stem if I have to, but there HAS to be a silver 1 inch stem.

    Contact Sacha White or Sam Whittingham and get the stem made. You will get a custom, one off worthy of the finest bike, it will have the exact size and angle you want. You'll spend about $100 I would think.

    Sacha is at vanilla.com and Sam is at timetogetnaked.com

    good luck.

    Nice info, thanks. One Santa heads back to the North Pole I will look into this for sure. 100 bucks seems logical for this rig, considering what I paid for my Nitto cages!

    Thanks.

    Sam is either timetogetnaked.com or fortebikes.com ( he has to change his name because of a certain large retailer)

    I don't think you are going to find anything that meets all your requirements. 4 bolt faceplates are a fairly new fad that seem to only come in the 1-1/8" varity.

    Ritchey used to make the Comp model in a gray/silver color w/1" clamp - two bolt clamp though. Performance sold them among others. I actually prefer the Comp over the WCS because it's stouter and the face place doesn't make so much noise.

    Good luck.

    Like the other posters have said, you probably won't find a 1" steerer clamp. (Almost) nobody makes one. You'll have to use a shim, in which case, you should get a Thompson.

    After looking at the images on the Vanilla site, that may actually be an appropriate direction. Maybe I can get a custom silver stem with blue "Vanilla" inscription to match my panels.
