    Trekking Bar Installation

    When installing trekking bars how does one compensate for the loss of reach? IOW, if you have a 100 mm stem on a mountain bike and install trekking bars with the controls on the nearer bars, you effectively decrease your reach by 100 mm. That seems problematic.

    How is this normally handled?
