    What size stem are you running on your AM rig?

    Just curious what everyone is running on their AM bike. I have a Santa Cruz Butcher with a 70mm stem, but I'm planning to downsize to a stubbier yet beefier (0 rise) 50mm stem for more aggressive riding with lots of air time.

    70mm on my Reign X, seems to be a good compromise for the trails. I have a 50mm I will throw on for DH days.

    -20mm stem with a 90 degree rise. Compliments my 847mm DH flat bars on my 4" travel Deluxe AM Trail Bike.

    Stem length questions on websites make me nervous as it's more of a personal fit/preference issue. It's like asking what size shoes everyone is wearing because of some wierd phobia of not having the size most people are wearing.

    I built up two 'All-Mountain' bikes with ETT's within .2 inches of each other but ran a 65mm zero rise stem on one and a 75mm negative 6 degree rise on the other as the bikes fit differently even though they were almost identical in size and travel.

    To throw up a number like most have done here is no different from the homelessman shouting at the light pole in the cold. It makes no sense.

    Ride with whatever length stem is most comfortable as far as fit/your 'style' of riding.

    But just keep in mind that if it's over 90mm long you will be gang raped.

    Question: What size stem are you running on your AM rig?

    Answer: ??mm

    If he wanted your life story whilst being a condescending ****er I'm sure he would have phrased his question differently

    Here some useful links:

    Personally I think that back inclination is the same when your hands are moving trough the arc trajectory - that's when you riding seated

    In that way you can use short/low or high/long stem
