    reign stem length?

    hi, i'm 5'4.5" with a ~30" inseam and i'm looking for advice on what stem length i should be running on my 16" reign. i will be running a pike and using it as an aggressive trail bike with small dips into light freeride. what would be too short? too long? at first i was thinking of running 60-75mm, but after talking to people at the local bike shops now i'm thinking of going as low as 50mm. keep in mind i will be doing a lot of climbing as well as descending with this bike. please guide me in the right direction! thanks

    AS long as your Pike of choice has the u-turn, you should be fine with the 50mm. If you don't have the U-turn, you may want to think about going longer (75mm), the front of the bike may wander to much on steep climbs with a short 50mm stem.
