    Help with Fit of New Bike

    I just bought a Trek 4300 DISC. I am a new rider who will be mainly on bike paths but will progress to some offroad stuff. I like having my handle bars closer to the level of the seat for comfort but I'd like to get a little more aggressive. Does anyone know if the handlebars can be lowered a few inches?

    Thanks!
    - Jim

    Different stem

    Replace the rise handle bars with flat bar

    spacers

    Usually there are multiple spacer rings between the headset and the stem. Last resort if you can't get it low enough with a stem or bar change, take some spacers out. You might have to cut the steer tube on your fork as a result.
