Hey, guys. I'm planning on shortening the stock stem on my bike so that I can move my seat further back to a more comfy position without stretching out like crazy to get to the handlebars.
How will moving the handles backward in relation to the wheel axis change the handling? How far back is too far?
I'm setting it up for a commuter type bike, and I'm thinking about going from a 40 degree riser stem of 120mm length to a 45mm stem with 6 degree rise. (I think that cuts back the reach about 4cm, and I'll probably move the seat back about that much.)
