    Cannondale with Headshok Stem question

    I have a 1997 Cannondale F900 that I started riding again but don't like the bar position.



    I was looking at either a 120 or 130mm stem with a 20D angle. I am 6'0" tall and have a 72" wingspan but a longer torso. The stock stem makes me feel like I am leaning forward too much and is tiersome. Which of these two stems would be a better choice and why? I am mainly concerned about achieving a more straight up riding position.....I may also be looking at some taller bars also.

    How long is your current stem? When replacing be aware you must buy a specific stem for the headshock. It's not a standard size.

    Maybe try some riser bars with some sweep.

    I am not exactly sure how to measure the current stem. I measured from the center of the post to the center of the bars and came up around 140mm...seems long.

    That's correct. It looks long.

    Here's chart that shows how rise effects reach.
