    Med Epiphany Stem Advice

    Im 5'7 Wondering if I go with a shorter stem 75mm 10deg rise, to get me a little more comfortable would it make the steering too twitchy ?

    I doubt it. I recently replaced the 100 on my xc ht with a 70 and really like the handling. I have a Turner RFX that I rode on a 3 week trip to Moab, Hurricane and Bootleg Canyon on all sorts of differnt trails from XC to DH. I had planed to swap stems between a 50 and a 70 to suit the days ride but ended up riding everything with the 50. I must have adjusted my climbing position by leaning over the bar more but climbing wasn't hindered and descending was amazing. Obviously your bike is different but I would try the shorter stem.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.
