    New question here. Lefty XC3si stem angle???

    I usually see stems listed in 6, 10, 15 degree options. The XC3si comes in 85 and 95 degrees. What up wit dat? I guess I want the lower, drop style stem for my F29... which one to get?

    85 is like a -5 angle (pointing more downward) and 95 is +5 (pointing upward). They are listed with the angle between the steerer and the stem extension. Silly I know.
