OK, my new bike, the 2010 Charge Mixer 8 that I'm using to tow my trailer, the frame is kind of strange, very tall, but short. I find the reach to the bars really short, I feel cramped in the saddle. I have the seat pushed back on it's rails as far as it will go, but still, I'm wanting another couple of inches of reach. I'd also like to go up another inch or two. I put the headriser thing on the bike to get the bars up a fair bit, and I bought an adjustable stem to the bars more, but in doing so, I also move them closer to me not what I wanted.
This is the adjustable stem......
(Ignore how stuff looks on my bars, I put the stem flat to measure it)
How do you measure these things?
Bazooka calls this a 95mm stem.
What I'm looking at is this one.....
They are saying that it is 120mm
So would it make sense that the 120mm long stem is 25mm longer than the 95mm stem? I figure with the extra inch, I could still go up a bit, but stay out further....?
Any other suggestions would also be welcome.
I really do want a more upright seating position, as I am not going fast, and need to really be aware of what is going on around me.
