Yesterday I rode some fast, tight, and semi-technical single track. My back was fine through out the whole ride, but now I notice on this terrain that I am riding sort of sketchy. For example, my front wheel is all over the place on the tight turns. I know its probably just me not being used to the bike or the riding(havent riden single track in those conditions in years), combined with the clipless pedals which are new for me. I fell a couple times, for the first time on these pedals, only once was my fault though(the second time a tree branch snagged my pack and pulled me down
) So, I think I am going to just try to keep this stem for a while and see how everything pans out. Ill give it a few more weeks and see what happens. It seems if I change the stem it could significantly change how I ride the bike, and Im not even used to this set-up yet. So I wait.
