There were a couple threads on here that discuss the 1-1/4" OD2 stem and steerer tubes but I still can't find a solution...
I'm simply trying to go down in stem length size. I'm going wider and wider in handlebar width and so I'm going down in stem length size as well. I have a Anthem X 29er that came with the standard 100mm length stem. I then bought a Giant contact OD2 stem in 70mm length and coupled it with some 720mm handlebars and loved it, except for the fact that those stems are $90! I've been getting into some Super D races lately and want to try even wider bars say 780mm.
My dilemma lies in the fact that the Giant contact stems that are OD2 only go down to 70mm length and I desperately want to try a 40 or 50mm length stem to couple with some 780mm handlebars. There's a plethora of stem options out there but very few are that new Giant 1-1/4" and the one's that are only are available in 80mm length and above... I'm trying to go shorter.
Is it possible to just get a 1-1/2" (1.5") stem and shim it? Does anyone make any steerer shims for this. I've seen some shim options to go from 1.5" to 1.125 (1-1/8") but none for 1-1/4" This is getting very frustrating
My buddy just got a brand new Trance X 29er 0 and wants to do the same. Going down to a 70mm giant stem for $90 seems ridiculous
