Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

scott cr1 stem change

Does anybody know what the stem angle is on the stock stem that comes on the Scott Cr1 team 52cm is? All that I can gather from the Scott website is that the stem length on the 52cm frame is 110mm. The reason I am asking is, I had the original Scott stem switched out with a slightly shorter 100mm stem (don't know the angle on this either, but it seems to be the same angle as the original factory stem) at the LBS. After being on the shorter stem for a while now, I've decided that I'd like to re-extend my reach to the handlebars, but not quite as much as I had on the original factory stem. The current stem is just too cramped feeling and the factory stem just felt too long. Since there aren't any 105mm stems, I figure the best way to go about it is to try either a 110mm or a 100mm stem with a different angle to try and extend my reach right now. But of course to do that, I need to figure out what the original stem angle is on the stock Scott stem. Anybody have an answer to this? If so, are there any recommendations as to which angle/length I should try next if I want something just a tad shorter in reach compared to the stock setup? Thanks for the help!

P.S. - The reason I can't go back to the LBS is because I moved across the country just recently.

Try moving the stem down a spacer. That should increase reach by a hair.

Thanks for the reply, but I'd prefer to keep the spacers the same if possible, so does anybody have the stem angle info on the stock stem?
