    SPEC PRO-SET II MTB STEM for OD2?

    Looking for a (budget) short stem to replace the stock on a Large AX29. Google-fu found a few references to the Specialized PRO-SET II
    MTB STEM which as far as I can tell has 1.25" bore (to allow for the shims). Unfortunately, the specs don't list the bore diameter

    Obviously, I 'd want to use it sans shims and was curious if anyone had real world experience with this stem. I'm figuring $40 would be a steel to experiment with a shorter stem.

    No, the Specialized comp-set stems won't work. I just bought a '14 Trance 27.5 1 and wanted taller stem and had LBS order the Giant 100mm 20 deg rise for OD2 ($100 ouch!). When I went to put it on, I realized I had a bunch of Spec stems, so I took out the shim and tried it...nope, the inner diameter of the Spec stem is LARGER than 1.25" and the stem just flopped around. Measuring now with a caliper, the Spec stem ID without the shim is 1.297"
