    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

    **** off

    you sure know how to make a thread that people are enticed to answer your question.

    but to answer your question, we have no idea. it all depends on your body dimensions and what you are comfortable with.

    haha dude i aint tryna be a dick, i'm just well aware how quick people are to jump on someone for a 'n00b' equipment question. i'm just f uckin around.

    anyway yeah i know there's no DEFINITIVE combo, I was just wondering what each specific rider used.

    Hey,

    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.
