i just got a steamroller and i'm trying to figure out what kind of bars i want. i am leaning towards a flat or riser bar , but i dont know how to make that work geometry-wise. on my cross bike, i have a 52 cm TT and a 9 cm stem w/drops, and that fits me perfectly. the surly has a 53 TT, so if i use a 10 cm stem, i'm still coming up about 7-8 cm short.
so i guess my question is, how do you get proper riding position with a flat bar without using a ridiculously long stem?
