    Anyone have OD2 headset and stem they don't need?

    I have a Fox fork that I am trying to make work for cheap. It has the OD2 (1-1/4 to 1-1/2) steerer so I am hoping someone has a takeoff headset and stem (70 or 80mm would be perfect) they are willing to part with. Thanks for your help!

    Best bet is ebay quick search plenty of options and reasonable rates.
    XC, Road, XXC, Endurance, Mtn, All-Mtn, Cross, Gravel, just go have fun on 2 wheels!

    Yeah I know it's available there, my LBS, and on giantbikespares but I am trying to see if there are any other bike nerds like me that save every part ever in hopes that it can be used again some day (Anyone need a 1-1/2" straight steerer for a Lyrik 26? Saint M806 rear derailleur?). I had both pieces but in a recent move across country, I think I accidentally donated them to the bike co-op before driving 3000 miles. I'll give it a week or so before grabbing them at the local shop. Thanks

    I have the factory stem from a 2017 Anthem 2. Does that qualify?

    I really really appreciate it but your Anthem was the regular Overdrive (1-1/8 to 1-1/2 taper) standard. The stem and headset that I'm looking for would have been from certain higher end Giants from 2014-2016.

    I think that is true for the headset, but the factory stem I took off has a shim to reduce it to 1 1/8. Let me know.

    Ohhh yeah, I stand corrected. I will shoot you a PM! Thanks!

    Still on the hunt for an upper headset assembly (I found a zerostack 1-1/2 bottom cup with a crown race that fits) and spacers.
