    New question here. Overdrive 2. Which stem?

    I would like to try a shorter stem on my Anthem X 29er XL than the 110mm one that it came with. Borrowed a 90mm from my LBS but it didn't fit onto the stalk (I think that's what it's called). From a quick search it appears to be due to the Overdrive 2 being 1 1/4'' rather than 1 1/8''

    Can anyone confirm if this is correct and maybe recommend a stem that fits it?

    Anyone who have gone with a shorter stem than the stock one?

    Thanks!

    That is correct. Giant sells OD2 stems but i have no idea how short they go. I've heard the Specialized pro set stems work without the angled shim. They go down to 60mm if that's short enough for you.

    I have a 60mm on my 2013 trance x29er with an OD2 fork. Giant offers stems from 130mm to 48mm you can check out their stems here Stems - Bike Gear | Giant Bicycles | United States

    I have the contact AM and I'm very happy with it. Looks good, crazy stiff but they are a little $$ at $100 retail that's Thomson price level. But I will say the performance so far is spot on.

    Thanx! Looks like I'll be getting a Giant stem. At least the Connect SL OD2 ones are only 45$.

    Anyone who have shortened their Anthem X 29er stem? Any recommendations on how short to go? I'm thinking 80 mm...
