    Stem Size

    Your feelings are right, you probably need a longer stem. I recently replaced my Trek 1440 stem with one which brought it to seat height--much, much better. Then I replaced my LeTour's stem with one that brought it to over an inch above seat height--better still, especially with bar-end shifters (which you don't have). See the Rivendell Bicycles web site for an explaination on this--but today's bicycles have a stem height which is much too short for comfort. There's also some good discussion on this on the touring threads on this site. Good luck,

    Oops, I didn't mean to start a new thread, only to reply to the Cannondale feeling squeezed thread. Continue the discussion if you like, but I really didn't mean to start it.

    Hey I guess they are, but if you start a new thread you put a subject in and you have to click "submit new THREAD" at the bottom

    I guess I shouldn't have clicked the button with my eyes closed

    At least I ride the bike with my eyes open. But I did elevate my handlebars with new stems on both my bikes.
