    Upgrade Question!!!!

    So its not so much of an upgrade rather just a change in the geometry on my bike. From my AM FR bike I just sold my EA50 XC Stem and handlebars. Im looking to bring my reach in from the 120 mm 6 degree stem that I had to about 50-70 mm stem with no rise and maybe some riser bars. A majority of my riding is pounding downhill technical terrain and bombing off some intermediate drops. I have around 50-60 spend but would love to spend less. I found a Race face DH Evolve setup on Jenson USA that I can score for about 55 bucks. I like the four bolt clamp and the upgrade from a 25.4 to 31.8 bar for more strength. Any input or suggesitons?

    Any Recommendation on the height of the hand position on the bars in relation to seat position? Or is that determined by the individual rider?
