Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Thomson X2 vs X4 question....

I am looking to get the X2 road stem (wanting a 17degree) and I will have to get a shim to fit the bars. I have the x4 now with a shim and it fits perfectly width-wise.

Looking at the face plate, the x4 seems wider than the x2. is the x2 narrower and if that is the case, do they make narrower shims?

also, any other black -/+17 threadless stem suggestions? Have the RB010AA bars on the way with a 25.4 clamp area.
