    How to measure hanslebar stem lengths?

    Were talking a stem for a 1 1/8" threadless steering tube. To determine the stems length do you measure from the center of the steering tube to the center of the handlebar or to the back of the handlebar?

    +1, and measure along the extension, not horizontally (if it slopes).
