I am looking to get a shorter stem with a different angle to (hopefully) relieve some neck pain that I am experiencing. I have a Ritchey Pro +/- 6 stem. I'm not sure of the length, probably a 100 or 110. How are the lengths measured? Center of handlebars to center of steerer?
Also, I'm looking at the Ritchey Pro +30 road stem as a replacement. I'm thinking that with a shorter stem, and a larger angle, I will be in a more upright riding position thus relieving some of the neck strain that I am experiencing. I was thinking a 60 or 70mm should do it.
Thanks for your assistance.
