Look closely…does something seem wrong with this picture?
It caught my eye as I was wandering about Cycles de Oro’s floor, and it’s a unique little item that Specialized makes but hasn’t really promoted.Ã‚Â Called the Comp-Set stem, it uses an angled shim between the steerer tube and the stem to create a wide range of angles, letting you dial in the fit of your bike.
Two stem angles are offered, 12Ã‚Âº and 24Ã‚Âº, and the shims provide up to an additional 20Ã‚Âº of adjustment (up to 10 positions at 2Ã‚Âº adjustment each).Ã‚Â They’re available in 12 lengths and made for oversize 31.8mm handlebars.Ã‚Â They include a top cap and weigh in at 172g (110mm).

MSRP is $45.00.
