My bike (Trek 2100, 2006) is super comfy for sub 100-mile rides, but I've noticed that when the miles pile up, I get some numbness in my wrists. My bars are about 2" below the saddle....I'd like to make it so that my bars are level with the saddle, but the stem is already at the top of the post (and yes, I've flipped the stem).
Do I a) get a more severely angled stem, b) instal a stem riser or c) get a new fork and cut the tube to fit?
C is probably the best, but it sounds really expensive
A might affect the handling if the effective reach of the stem is shortened
B would be easiest (really easy), but I'm nervous about damaging the carbon post and about long-term long-distance reliability
Any thoughts? Anyone ever use a riser?
