This is something I'm a bit confused about. Since my main concern is getting them up to the level of the seat, I would think that if I just got a longer stem that brought them up higher, I'd also want it to have a somewhat longer reach since the bars would already be getting closer to me. How does it work with the adjustable stems, since the only way to get it higher is also to bring it closer? Or is the maximum height of the stem also higher than what is currently on my bike? Also, once you have the height/reach where you want it on an adjustable stem, how do you translate that into the correct height/length of stem on a non-adjustable one?
