Well, I started originally with a 12 cm stem/bar. But had the feeling I was too stretched out on the bike. After a few weeks I thought the shorter stem would solve that. Well, it did - but it did not solve all matters like saddle pain... It took a considerable time to solve that problem - I had to move my saddle a bit more backwards and pointed the tip a slight bit upwards and that does pose the question asked earlier. Had I positioned the saddle at the same angle/distance from the stem/bar from the start... it might have fit rightaway... And, would it damage the saddle anyway to clamp it beyond the markings?
