    40 Deg stem for Jekyll...?

    I have an 04 Jekyll 1000 XL and need to bring the handlebars up quite a bit. I have just ordered some Azonic 2.5" riser bars, but suspect I will need to lift the stem as well. As the Cannondale stem is a non-standard size I am having trouble finding anything over 25deg (Woodman). Does anyone know of a company that makes a long (120/130mm) 40/45deg stem...?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks jefj... I'll order one from my nearest C dealer...

    I'm a BIG Clyde's, my seat is about 8" higher than the bars on an XL frame, and I'm leaning down too far (killing my neck/back).

    Thanks for your help...

    Perhaps 80-100mmx 35deg?

    With a shorter stem than 130, you might sit more upright, because the longer stem stretches you out more.

    I am 6'4 with a 35" inseam, and was using a 100X35 stem with a ML riser. (XL Jekyll, and now XL Gemini 1000)

    Thanks damion... I'll give that some thought. I'm 6'.6" with a 36" inseam and arms like an ape...! Your seat is still quite high in relation to your bars, do you find that comfortable?

    Fine for me.

    I'd say go to your dealer and see if they are willing to let you play with some different stems.

    The 100mmX35 stem with a 2"riser will help, I am sure.

    I'm 6.5 w/ XL Jekyll, I have 100x35 stem and flat bars. I have 410mm Thomson and it's pushed out about 330mm, I have really long (and skinny :-)) arms and legs. I only feel pain in my back if I'm not riding for long time, after couple of rides it fades away.
