Dialing in fit, spreadsheet

Ok.. well. Maybe ya'll have a good place to get this done already, but I've been mucking around with stem lengths and angles and - while currently happy with my set up on the new bike, I wanted to know how changes in stem angle/length/spacers would affect my current set up.

That being said, I threw together the trig/formulas to get the right numbers in an excel spreadsheet and figured ya'll would find it useful. The Habenero picture was nice, but I like real numbers.

What version of office did you make it in please? Never mind it does seem to be working. I have only Office 2000 and have in the past met some surprising compatability problems.

Very useful, thanks!

Very cool. Is the nose-to-bars measurement to the center of the bars?

The file as linked in the OP has been updated to correct some bad math and to work properly with stem measurements as they publish them. A note added for people like me that are just learning how these things work!

Quite annoying I might add how people publish stem lengths
