How long is the stem on a 23" Men's Raleigh Sports? At the bike coop Saturday, I was told I could pull it out "until I saw a line," but my wife's Lady's 21" had about a 5" stem, and it did not have a line on it. Are the Men's and Lady's the same? I tugged on mine, but could not get it out. I don't see a line, but I doubt if this stem has one. I have it in good spot, but if it's only 5", I only have about 1 1/2" in the head tube. I don't want the handlebars to come off when I'm riding.
Anybody know? No, I didn't take a picture, but it's up maybe 1/2" from what's in this picture:
I raised the seat a bit, so I'd like the handlebars up a bit, too.
