Stem Help

Hey guys, I need your help!! I do not have a caliper so I am unable to measure this for myself so everyone in the forum is my best bet to answer this question. I have a 2003 Fisher Tassajara and I need to know the stem size. I tried to research but came up empty handed. Does anyone know the size? I want to upgrade to an Easton EA70 but do not know if I need 100x10, 110x10 or 120x10. Help please!! Thanks in advance!

Get what feels right. See if your LBS will temporarily install an adjustable stem and let you ride it around for a little bit. This will help you determine what length and rise feels most comfortable.

If the one that came on your bike feels right, you can measure it. Measure along centerline on the top of the stem from handlebar center to steerer tube center.

Measure carefully! One inch=25.4mm, so aso a small error in your measurement can result in the wrong size replacement.
