    I have a Twenty6 stem.I know there are spacers,but I'm just wondering if anyone makes a higher rise @ 55mm.

    Guessing you mean direct mount. Not sure how high the Twenty6 is. But maybe check out the PO1NT infinite. If you're not interested in the riser pads because of weight, the PO1NT stem will be as light as virtually anything else.

    I've been wondering the same thing. The tallest one I could find is the Holzfeller one. Which I bought, despite my hatred of all things sram. I'll let you know how tall it actually is once I get it.

    Not crazy about the split stem.I just don't trust that as much.And it's a compromise of length and height.

    ControlTech. I don't know what the rise is in millimeters but it's WAY up there.

    I have one that's brand new. I never ran it because it is tall as hell. My ControlTech with flat bars was taller than my Sunline or Spank direct mount with 15m rise bars.

    Kinda what I figured, but the connected front plate threw me.

    Love my Thomson DM stem - the most split of all splits haha.

    The point 1 dosent have a front plate,it's just two clamping arms.It may be fine,it just seems like added stress to the bolts.
