How To Choose Stem Size And Rise


Recommended Posts

Anyone got a generic 'formula' to work out the best stem length and rise for certain body height (5'11) and frame Geo (1080 WBase)? Obviously other than trial and error.


Its a hard one, because its purely preferential. You can have a go on other peoples bikes and see how theirs feels but because its an entirely different bike its not really something that you can compare directly against your own. Maybe ask friends to swap stems with you mid-ride so you can try them out as its a relatively easy process to swap tems over.

Your generally going to have to go with what feels most comfortable to you though.
