    Lefty and Stem Length Question

    Hello Folks

    I am looking for info on what is the shortest stem to use with a Lefty fork.

    A buddy of mine purchased a 2006ish F800 (DLR2 fork) and the cockpit is a little large for him, and a shorter stem is in order. I believe the bike has 120 mm stem on it.

    What stem can be used with 31.8 bars before it interferes with the Lefty fork?

    Thank you in advance!

    Well on my 2012 flash 29er I was able to put a 90mm on it but then it made the bike twitchy so I went back to the stock 110mm

    90mm is shortest you can effectively use.

    I have a 90mm on my Rize, with carbon lefty and 31.8 bar and have plenty of room. I don't see why even a 70mm would be an issue...

    As far as I know 90 mm is shortest they make in the OPI stem. Not sure about the other one
