Please bear with me here. May be some rambling to follow.
I have in the garage an old Cannondale Jeckyl from the turn of the Century. I recently had the idea of resurrecting it. However, a post fettling ride proved that it is not going to fill the gap for longer ride comfort.
Narrow bars at 630mm and long stem giving very much a head down arse up position that my old bones will not wear for all day jaunts. I know that wider bars will exaggerate this even more unless I get a shorter stem. This is not going to be a cheap enterprise due to the Lefty stem (25.4 to further complicate things) so I want to get it right.
Is there a formula that might help me get the wider bars/shorter stem plus decreasing the overall reach without trail and error?
Any help appreciated. Also please feel free to point any flaws in my thinking.
