What size stems/frames do you riser bar folks use?
Yeah, I know... Let's see, Riser bars = fashion/hipster/unfunctional, etc. I get the hate, whatever.
Personally I like how I can ride with them, and I rarely use the drops in drop bars AND yeah, I like how they look. Sue me.
Reason I ask is I'm getting a new 53cm Mark V frame with a 100mm stem (10 degree rise), and wanna know if that's gonna be obviously too big. I know it depends a lot on me trying it out, I was just curious what sizes you guys run on the average. It seems like people opt for a much shorter stem. I'm 5'7" but have fairly long arms-- I guess I gotta just see how it fits.
Anyway, question still stands. And I searched, so f uck off
Few weeks I have been using a riser with 51.5cm frame a bit smaller than yours. But my stem is 90mm 58degrees down. My riser is 6cm up and it goes perfectly to my saddle height. I think if you get a rising stem, you might get your handle above your saddle. (This looks bad methink.) You should check.
