    Trials Newbie
  1. Oh my god! I have just installed the 110mm 35 degree Stem yesterday and what a difference it makes! It's like a new bike. My front wheel comes up so effortlessly compared to old Stem. Thanks for the advice guys!
  2. Thanks for your reply Sandbugg. I think I might go for the BBB brand 110mm at 35 degrees. Seems like a solid product and if its slightly too long I can always tilt my handlebars backwards (currently vertical)
  3. Thanks dk2 for your reply and advice. I have decided to upgrade my Stem, and found these three: 90mm 35 degree 110mm 35 degree 90mm 40 degree Any advice which one best to go for if I'm 6ft 5?
  4. Hello to everyone! I will get straight to the point. My name is Axel and I have just started my first proper season with Street trials (although I have wanted to try this for long time now) on the attached 24inch bike. I had to change gearing to 25/16 as it was 36/16, but apart from that it's all stock as I bought it 10 years ago from Halfords and now finally I will put it to some real strain testing I am enjoying a lot learning both trials and Street riding basics, but the only thing is that I feel very bent and too much over the handlebars (almost like if I was stretching to touch the ground). Geo is roughly 405mm chain, 980mm wb, bb 15mm? Stem is around 60mm with 10-15 degrees rise. Problem might be that I am 6 ft 5 (!). Would changing the stem to let's say 90mm and 35 degrees solve this or only help slightly? If it helps, difference between bb and bars is 660mm. I saw a thread somewhere that a guy of 6 ft 2 was running at 720mm, which makes me think this is why I feel so uncomfortable on the bike and my back kills me all the time. Appreciate any tips Axel
