Usually don't see stems as long as that on the 4 hun. Did that come stock on your Diamond back?

I am thinking 130mm with 15 degrees of rise.

My hardrock was speced with something like that. Trials stems are usually a lot longer from the pics Ive seen.

yeah, mindbogger is right. It's the stem off my Diamonback right now though, my money has to go towards cranks. so i'll have to live with it for a couple weeks.
