What do you guys think about getting a stem that will elevate the flat bar? For instance, replacing a 7 degree stem with a 17 degree stem. Would that be the same?

Leaving bike outside in cold weather.

Now with winter coming on I was wondering if it's possible to do damage to a air fork and shock by leaving my bike stored outside in a shed during really cold weather.

Need information on build

I'm building a 2004 Trek Fuel 90. I bought a new frame on Ebay and was wondering if anyone knew what the original stem length is for that frame. The frame size is large or 19.5.

Lock on grips

I hope this isn't a stupid question. Are lock on grips easier to slide on and off a handlebar? I have a carbon bar and putting on and taking off grips is a real pain in the *****.
