After much research into the night, I want to run my calculations past some people with math and mechanical skills which I lack.
I am attempting to raise my handlebars. I have been trying to calculate the effect of increasing the angle on the rise and reach of the handle bars.
Current stem is -6 degrees and a length of 110mm. I calculate a rise of -11.5 mm and a reach of 109.4 mm.
If I were to acquire a +17 degree stem at a length of 110mm. I calculate the rise would be 32.2 and the reach would be 105.2 mm.
Changing from the -6 degree stem to a 17 degree stem of the same length, I figure that my handle bars would be 43.7 mm higher and 4.2 mm closer.
Am I correct?
