Correct

X2 Road, X4 Mountain.

My friend is running the x2 on his singlespeed. No problems at all
The x4 uses 4 bolts to hold the bars and the x2 uses 2 bolts. I am sure there are other differences as well but....... Call thomson and ask them, their customer service is awesome:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Yes Thomson X4 is the mountain version. For a bigger man I would definitely recommend the X4, although many do run the X2 on weight weenie race bikes.

Personally, while I understand their allure, but I recommend anyone to save their money and buy a forged stem as you can get something that is most likely stronger and lighter for less than half the price

Easton, Race Face, Truvativ, Ritchey, FSA, and others only make forged stems. Even a $20 forged stem will be a set and forget item, it will probably just weigh more than a $60 forged stem
