    I assume you mean 90, 1-1/8 steerer and 31.8 clamp ?

    140s are hard to come by in general. Although I'm some obscure brand makes a 140x90, I couldn't find one for myself and tried a 140x86 Deda Zero100. I didn't have enough steerer and ended up swapping my bars to 26.0. Plenty 26.0 x 140x90 stems exist used or NOS.

    How did you like your Zero100? I'm considering one for my new acquisition, to match the bars. I'm otherwise a 3TTT Arx Pro devotee.

    It's an excellent stem, very accruate clamp dimensions for solid joints without excessive torque and very stiff. I liked the satin, "somewhat" understated finish as well. Used a cheap Zero1 prior, but the paint on those appeared to cause inconsistent fit and occasional creaking. Older 25.4 and 26.0 Thomson stems are my benchmark, I'm not a big fan of the newer 31.8 design, especially the X2 with 2-bolt clamp.

    Yes 140mm @90 you're correct. Doesn't have to be 31.8 so i'd love to know what 26mm stem you have if you could share that.

    If you're hard pressed to find a stem with dimensions you want, I suggest you go custom. To me, the price is worth it. And there's a certain cachet to having a custom stem.

    Steelman and Soulcraft appeal to me.

    All the stems I was referring to are old and probably no longer offered outside ebay, classifieds, etc.

    140mm x 90 x 26.0
    - 3T Forma for 1" steerer (I believe they also made a 1-1/8")
    - Thomson Elite (old style) 1-1/8 steerer
    - ControlTech single bolt bar clamp with thread inserts (the good ControlTeck stems) think it's 1"
    - Salsa welded steel, 1"

    140mm x 90 x 25.4
    - Syncros hinged, 1"
    - ControlTech as mentioned above but in 25.4, 1-1/8

    135mm x 90 x 26.0
    - Salsa Moto Ace, 1-1/8

    and a bunch more I don't remember, all buried in my parts boxes.

    V-salon's own Eric from Winter Bicycles makes some pretty cool custom stems too.

    Specialized Bicycle Components

    Looks like Specialized makes a 140mm stem and with their wedge system you can go anywhere from 0 to 8 degrees.

    Interesting stem, haven't seen that before. It appears, however, that 4 (or 86 depending on how you look at it) is the shallowest one can go, so 90 isn't possible. But nice to see a 140mm offered.

    Here's the instructions for the stem. This pdf is before the 4 degree stem was offered, but im sure you can figure the math out. -4 stem with a +4 shim is zero.

    another data point for you...I stopped using Deda stems (a Newton and a Zero 100) after I discovered the clamps on both were digging into my carbon steerer tube. They were both tightened to 5nm using my syntace torque wrench. I'm guessing they were "fine" given the gazillion Deda stems out there on carbon steerers, but I wasn't thrilled about riding around on a stem that was digging into my fork. I have a Newton on another bike, but it has a 1" steerer, so I have to use an adapter sleeve doesn't allow the clamps to dig in).
