This was a pic I took to compare stems (120mm 6 vs the adjustable stem that was also ~120 in its current orientation)
Is it adequate to give an answer to my handlebar tape removal question?
Oh I should also re-ask for clarification, will I need to remove the brake hood?
And if so, could I leave the brake's "clamp ring" on the handlebar?
Edit: Geez, I am just realizing it now as I look at the pic. It seems obvious that the stem I WANT to use I would certainly NOT have to remove the handlebar tape. However it looks as though I will HAVE to with the adjustable stem (I was hoping for some trick (and frankly prying that clamp open a little extra is tempting)
