    Personal question, How long is your stem?

    Just wondering, what is the most common stem length. I know stem length is only one of several critical variables in proper bike fit but I was wondering if one length is the most common esp. on fixed gear bikes.

    You could set this thread up as a poll. I bet you'd get a bell curve peaking around 10 cm, along with a lot of juvenile innuendo.

    Good point, because the rise affects the real distance to the bars.

    100mm for drops or risers and 70-80mm for bullhorns.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    I was wondering how long it would take...

    Anyway, 10cm, no rise on one bike, 12cm, no rise on the other bike. 10cm is on the bike I use bullhorns on, 12cm is on my other bike which gots risers, hence the slight difference.

    Edit: and if it matters, the 10cm one is Ritchey WCS and the 12cm is Cinelli.
