I have been considering buying a Thomson X-4 stem and would like it to match the bar height that I get when the bike is setup with a Thomson Elite 110mm X 5 degree stem. The flat bars I am using with the Elite stem are also available with the identical sweep in oversize, so matching that part up is not a problem. What I am wondering though is that the X-4 is only available in either a 0 or 10 degree rise. If I opt for the 0 degree, would the additional diameter of the oversize bar make up for the difference between the current 5 degree rise of the Elite stem and 0 degree of the X-4.
I have another bike that needs a stem and handlebar, so I figured move my current setup over to the other bike and this would give me a good excuse to get an oversized bar for my SS.
