I'm riding the Cult Mind Control stem, it's a 52mm reach and I like it, but I never rode a 45mm reach stem so I can't really compare the two. I went from a 48mm reach to a 51mm reach stem before though and noticed a bit of a difference but that was only 3mm though.

If you go to Danscomp, and go to Stems, you can search by size. Like if you wanted a 52mm reach stem, just click the drop down box and select 52mm and pick one, but before you buy it post it here so we can tell you if it's junk or not.

I like my Demolition stem. I THINK it is 53 or 54 MM reach. I don't recall though.

What difference did you notice? Just curious because I think of changing my 48mm reach stem (im a tall guy) and I dont know if its worth it

I think the s and m enduro is 55mm but its a topload stem

anyone use the S&M Redneck XLT Stem? . I was also wondering if a topload stem would give me a little more height on my bars then a frontload.

I didn't really notice the size difference, but then again this was years ago so I don't remember. I do remember it took a few days to get used to and bunnyhopping really high was weird for awhile but that could have just been all in my head too

I've recently switched up to 21" and I bought a 53mm stem, I couldn't handle the extra 2mm so I switched back to 51mm and it feels much more comfortable.
