    We the people ... Calculating bar position for different stems

    Folks,

    I have been looking to change my stem length, but found it pretty confusing with all the different lengths and angles available. The idea is to change both the turning radius from the head as well as the reach from the seat. Figuring out where the bars will end up is simple geometry, but difficult to visualize. I put together an excel spreadsheet to calculate show a graphic comparing several different options.

    Enjoy!

    Ron.

    Yeah that creates a pretty nice graphic! Thanks for the link. I probably would not have take the time to do the XLS had I found that first. But glad I made the spreadsheet...I can compare a bunch of combinations. It gave me a real good idea of the trends when changing spacers or flipping the stem.

    Thanks again for the link!
