20mm too long.

70mm was too long on the Komodo. I took it back out today with the 50mm Transition Temple Lite, and it was pure heaven So BigRed is back in bidnizz.

In the same spirit...I took the 90mm Easton off the Crapper and moved over the 70mm Thomson from the Komodo and it feels much better.

What can I say? I like a more upright "tech" position.

I run a 50mm but waiting for a "talas" type stem to come out. I really miss a longer stem for climbing...

Yeah...it actually OEM'd with a 70mm on the size Lg. back when they sold the bike. I think the 50mm is worlds better though.
