Does anyone know of any brand/model of 1" threadless stem that has a -17 degree bend?

I want a threadless stem that will sit parallel to the ground when installed on the bike.

If you know of any please advise. .Thank you
You could run a shim with a 1 1/8" -17 deg stem. I have a shim on my 1" cross bike....works ok for me.

edit: http://harriscyclery.net/page.cfm?PageID=49&action=details&sku=SM3346 I like that one, if you have oversized bars.

I'll second the idea of using a shim. I recently put a 1 1/8" stem (w/ 31.8 clamp) on my touring bike, which has a 1" steerer. I've ridden a few hundred miles with my new setup and it's great.

I realized that the selection of stems out there pretty much necessitated using a shim, rather than spending the time to track down the equivalent angle 1" stem I wanted.

Also, the new X2 from Thomson is great! I have one on my SS and it's very stiff, etc. I'd highly recommend it (as it comes in +/- 17degrees).

KELLY stems

I recently purchased a 140mm, -17 degree, 1 inch threadless KELLY stem from eBay. They look and feel like my Salsa stems.
