|The wider, the better?|
I apologize to all you who actually take the time to read my ramblings, but I've actually been out of the saddle since Sea Otter (due to a number of reasons, but I won't bore you with that). BUT! I'm back to riding again and all is well in my world.
|70mm Thomson Stem|
I did a very strange math and it seemed to have worked. On my XC bike I run a 680mm handlebar with a 110mm stem. If I were to reduce the stem length, to say, 70mm - could I run a handlebar 40mm wider than 680mm (720mm) and have it work well? In other words, if I take away from the stem reach and add that to the bar width... how would it fair? Since I like my riding position a little stretched out, I purchased a 70mm stem to run with my very wide 760mm handlebar.
