- Changing Bar and Stem – Where Are My Bars Now
Yes and yes, all other things being equal. Is that what you wanted when you bought the new things?
Why are you asking? Are you happy with them now, or do you feel like you want them to be closer, further, higher or lower? Do you want to spend any money making it happen?Posted 4 months ago
I was looking to try taller bars giving a higher overall bar position, a buddy was selling some bars which matched this but they were 35mm diameter but he was selling the stem too. After riding on the weekend where I got arm pump for the first time in ages I realised the stem was shorter so maybe this had impacted my bar position too and maybe caused the arm pump.
Thanks for the calculator links, I’ll find the stem dimensions and check.Posted 4 months agogreyspokeMember
Those geometry charts are not so much use with v short stems, which tend not to have a stated angle (or if they do it is zero). There isn’t much scope for rise with short ones anyhow, unless you are looking at one of those zero length stems where the bar sits on top of the steerer. If you compare the two stems you should be able to estimate how high relative to the bottom of the stem where it sits against the spacer or headset the bottom of the bar is (just sit it on a flat surfact). Then you would have to correct for the differnt bar thicknesses. There could be a few mm diff in height between stems.Posted 4 months ago
