I recently purchased a 2008 Ibis Mojo SL size medium from a buddy at a great price so I couldn't say no even though the bike is a little too big for me. I currently have an easton monkeylite XC that is 685mm and an easton EA90 stem that is 80mm x 10 deg which I am fairly comfortable on but still do not feel like I have enough control of the front end. My question is two part: One I am thinking of switching to the easton haven carbon bars which are 711mm and the haven stem at 50mm x 0 deg and would that still be comfortable and help with my perceived control issues? And two, I live and ride in Florida where the single tracks are relatively tight and I do clip my bars when I start to get lazy so should I just man up, go wide and low and just pay more attention? Thanks for the help.
