The ControlTech Ti Mania stem claims to be the world's first monocoque constructed titanium stem, and it's a performance component that's well worth considering if you're looking for the finishing touch to your Ti pride and joy.
Control Tech are well known for alloy and carbon fibre components mostly stems and seatposts, though the Ti Mania range heralds a new move into the magic metal. I've been using this 90mm (lengths from 90-120mm in 10mm increments), 123g Ti Mania stem for about a year and it's proven itself in battle.
I'd just fitted ControlTech Carbon Comp handlebar 80mm reach, which is about 30/25cm Reach increase from my old handle bar....currrently using 100mm Stem....
So would getting a shorter Stem e.g 70mm or 80mm fix the problem...
now i had to move my Saddle forward a bit..to get a better feel

I've got an old Peugeot which is my main road bike but comfort on longer rides is becoming a bit of a problem especially in the lower back area.
The pedal/saddle relationship is fine so I want to raise the handle bars, only problem is I'm at the full extent of the current quill stem, so I think I need a longer stem with some adjustable reach.
Anyone got any experience of replacing a quill stem with a long threadless converter and A-head type stem or know of anyone who supplies longer quill stems with adjustable head?
Ritchey's WCS C260° stem is the company's lightest aluminium offering and uses a unique handlebar clamp with more of the stem wrapping around the bar.
What's there to get excited about a stem? Most look the same – a cylinder of aluminium with clamps at either end – but Ennello have endeavoured to break the mould by offering interchangeable faceplates for their Primo stem, adding flair to any bike.
