I've got a 2013 Giant XTC Advanced SL 0 29er. It's a great bike. But I need to get the front end a bit lower and I can't seem to find any stems to help achieve this because it has a 1.25 inch steerer - Overdrive 2. The stem on the bike is 8 degrees flipped 90mm long. I really need something with more drop like 12 degrees or 15 degrees. I know FSA, Ritchey and Syntace make 1.25 stems, but they are all 6 degrees I think, certainly no more than 8. Does anyone know of any stems that will help me out or any other solutions?
Cheers

May be worth speaking to Canyon about their Ritchey stems as they may come in a steeper -17 angle

Thanks for the advice!
I got one of the Giant Contact OD2 20 degree stems - thanks @c90sx. It's made the front end feel better now that the bars are lower.
The bonus was that the 90mm Contact alloy stem is actually 10g lighter than the much more expensive Contact SLR carbon stem in the same size that the bike came with?!
Contact SLR OD2 Stem 90mm - claimed weight 125g - real weight 154g.
Contact OD2 Stem 90mm - claimed weight 140g - real weight 144g.
That seems pretty silly?!
Have photos on scale, but can't work out how to post images. Anyone help?
Cheers
