    Handlebar / Stem setup?

    Just wondering what everyone is running...

    Flat bar or Riser?

    Negative degree stem?

    A buddy said I would be more comfortable with a negative rise stem and a Falt bar. I thought this was all personal preference.

    This is my first 29er, on my 26", I ran 90mm stem with a riser bar.

    it should be about putting the grips where it is comfortable, what ever the set up. If you like it the way it is it's probably OK. Does your friend think you are too upright?

    Why does it matter what everyone else is running? Your friend say youd be more comfortable with a different setup, are you uncomfortable now?
