    Can I see your 80mm stems?
    I am trying to decide what length of stem to get with 720mm bars. I am a pretty big guy and have pretty wide shoulders and thats why I want a 720. I just dont want a stem too short or long.

    Not enough info. former set-up? Long torso/short limbs like me? Riding style? Wider bars may or may not be advantageous.

    Google competitive cyclist, measure yourself carefully and use their fit calculator as a start. Then talk to a LBS if you have one you trust; they may have used or loaner parts.

    Riding style right now is trail riding to get back in shape so i can do all mountain again. My current setup i would have to measure, but bars are too narrow. My arms are about 30" apart when i hold them shoulder width in front of me. I am 5"10 riding a 19" or 20" bike. Its a large. We dont have a good lbs here, but i will swing by what we have when i get a chance. Think my current bars are around 25".
