I've just measured mine and i make it 35mm i'd round it up to 36mm to be on the safe side.

Is the forged Titanium the Specialized titanium stem known to break? Quite a history there.

I was just about to ask, is this the special specialised breaking stem?

Ive seen a couple of these FS recently. I always noticed it looked quite unique on Ned Overends bikes, but only just learnt they were forged ti. Quite trick/rare none the less. Btw all this talk of them breaking, is that when jumped & trashed on freeride bikes or through normal sensible wear & tear??

I think more "I built a Ned replica and rode it round the block and the stem broke and I landed on my face"...OK maybe overdramatic :)
Anyway (assuming its the same item):

thing is I thought Ned used a Zoom stem?
