    need help with Camber 29 stem concern

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum.
    Just bought a 2014 Camber 29 Comp, xl frame. 3 days ago
    I'm 6'4 200lbs.
    my issue.
    handlebars are to low for me, feels like I'm leaning to far downward.
    My Hard Rock has a 22 degree stem with 1/2 riser bar. perfect fit.
    has anyone installed a 20 degree stem and bar on there Camber?
    Just don't know what direction to go in.
    need more of a up right position.
    Because of this, I hate the bike.

    that sucks. normally, you could negotiate item swaps during the purchase of a new bike. I've swapped seats / stems before in the past pretty easily with my lbs prior to the transaction being finalized.

    You might be able to take the bike back into the shop and ask them if they could swap it. If not, maybe they could work out some kind of deal with you.

    they didn't let you ride it before you bought the bike?

    If you mean clamp size, then just pull the entire bar and stem off your old bike and give it a go, easy. Another alternative (if the Camber comes with it) is some of the specialED bikes comes with a stem that has a shim in it and if you flip it you can increase or decrease the angle, give that a go if yours has it.
