Just a question about the risks of raising the stem above the recommended amount.
I don't know if the bullhorns made it feel longer then it actually is but since i have switched to a straight bar it feels smaller.
Just wondering whats the risk. I put a decent amount of pressure on it as i was riding it. and i will carry my tools with me so if i need to adjust it i can. But whats the risk?
Thanks a bunch in advance.
I'm not sure how it applies to bikes, but a lot of factory recommendations are just safety precautions. In tennis (kind of my reference point of a lot of things) each racquet has a recommended tension range and its okay to go outside it so long as you are not putting too much extra tension on the frame. Is it the same for bikes?
BTW i also have the seat higher then the recommended amount, and thats been fine so far.
