Ok i just ditched the 110mm x 5deg stem i had, and put an old 90mmx10deg stem i had in the spare box. Now all of a sudden, i can pull wheelies (for the first time in my life) and i could also pull up without pedalling.
Now there must be some strange gravitational anomaly in my parking lot, or i had an overnight sleeping-wheelie101. Since both are not the case i guess its the shorter stem.
My knees have a distance of 9" from the bars (straight) at the closest point (knee high) and touch the bars when the bars are at a 45-50deg angle.
My options are to get either a 90mm X 5deg (thomson), or 70mm x 0deg (thomson), or a 70mm x 10deg (non thomson).
What do you reckon guys? .i just want the correct angle/length... i ll figure out myself about the brand (thomson, easton vice or diabolus).
The question is... will the 70mm be too short given the measurements i gave earlier on with the 90mm i currently have?
What will be the effect between 0, 5, 10 degress rise on the stem? (riding-wise).
thanks a lot!
