    Niner Trail stem thoughts / fit

    Thinking of buying a Niner trail stem. Cannot decide if I should go 50 or 70mm. Currently I ride a 60mm with a 6 degree rise but not sure how going from a 6 degree rise to a 0 degree rise would change things. Thoughts? Anyone comment on the trail stem?

    Plud your old and your new into this calculator and you will know exactly:

    Stem Comparison Tool | yojimg.net

    The 50mm will be 9mm lower than your current, and be 7mm closer in reach.
    The 70mm will be 2mm lower than your current, and will be 12mm longer in reach.

    What are everyone's experiences with Trail stem and hardcore riding? Anyone have a lot of hours at Downhill parks, or lots of jumps, 20 ride a month kind of usage, single speed torquing of wide bars?
