I'm currently building a fixie on a 53cm Leader 722ts with the RB-021 bullhorns. My question is what stem length should I use to be able to use the whole bar with out straining my shoulders trying to reach the ends/ drop. I'm 5'7" is that helps.

How far is the stem now?
Does it stress your shoulders now?
When i use my drops i have a 100mm stem
When i use my Drop bullhorns i have 1 80mm stem
When i use my risers/flatbar it is a 75mm or 100mm depending on how my back feels. Or how i want it to feel. Or if im going to school (:

Ask LBS about the bar height too. So height and length.
