    Riser bar - low or high? Big difference overs stock? Do I have to mess with stem?

    I was thinking of getting the Easton MonkeyLite XC for my Cannondale F3. I am not sure if I should get the high or the low rise. My current stock Cannondale bar is mostly comfortable for me but I am a little hunched.

    Anyways, which one should I get? Are they majorily different between the two? Which one is closer to my stock bar? Will I have to lower my stem or can I leave it as-is?

    i like the bar and saddle to be about the same hight, for a good climbing, descending set-up. look at what you have, decide what you want, and try it. if you feel a little hunched, then raise the bars a bit. always give a new set-up a chance to getting used to. at least one ride.

    if the reach feels ok, probably leave the stem alone for now.
    general rules, longstem-climbing. shorter stem descending.
    lower bars climbing, higher bars, decending.
