Ok, here goes another bike sizing question. But instead of asking which size to get, I just want to know whether people think this frame handles better with a short stem or longer stem.
I'm right in between sizes and could ride a larger frame with 80mm stem, or smaller frame with 110mm stem, with exactly the same fit (effective reach...saddle to bars)
Yes, I know I should demo both, but haven't been able to find both sizes available to take out on a real trail (I know the other hardtails have the same geo's...those aren't available either).
I'm more of an ultra endurance rider, and like to bomb the technical downhills, but don't want to give up any climbing ability either.
Any opinions on the handling with long versus short stems?
