    Race face Evolve XC stem,help me identify it.

    thought this was a 25.4mm 90mm long 6 degree rise.
    But swapped it out for a Syntace F99 and the Syntace is about 6mm lower at the handle bar.
    So i think the Evolve has more rise than 6 degrees.
    Does anyone know what other rises these stems were made in?
    I think I can remember raceface doing them in some odd rises like 7 and 9.
    Can anyone identify it for me or tell me how to measure the rise accurately?

    protractor? maybe it is just the stack height that is different?

    AS far as I know...

    RF made only the 6 d rise (or fall, if reversed). They offer only 1 stem for the Evolve.

    From their site:

    BUILT FOR: XC/Trail/AM
    SIZE: 70, 90, 100, 110, 120mm
    RISE: + or - 6 (reversible)
    BAR DIAMETER: 31.8mm
    WEIGHT: 160g (100mm)

    Yup, stack height is the place to look -- I got that surprise when i got my Titec stem -- wasn't just a swapout for the Evolve (which I am still running, was experimenting with different rises/cockpit geometry).
    A bike is the only drug with no bad side effects....

    Yep, probably stack height difference. Syntace has 38mm for the F99, RF doesn't specify, but a ruler should tell you if that's the difference...

    Got the ruler out, and the RF stack height is 40 mm, so it still doesn't add up .
    Looks like I'll have to get a protractor.
    thanks guys

    Curious, did the 38 from the Syntace site measure up? Got pics of each side by side?

    Yup, the Syntace is stack height of 38mm
    Got the Syntace on the bike, so no side by side at the moment
    Will see how it rides over the holidays
