    Wink Right stem for right position....Slayer sxc70

    Hi
    I have a Rm Slayer sxc70team 18 size 2009 and I have a race face stem 90mm 6degree......I'm 178cm tall and I feel myself a bit compressed on the bike....maybe too much seated....I'd like to try a 110mm stem but I don't know if it can be too much....what is your set up?
    Thanks
    Bye

    Do you have an extra long torso or arms?
    How much seatpost is exposed and how is your saddle positioned now?

    Because of the angle of the seatpost, if you have less seatpost exposed, it shortens the cockpit quickly. If you run less exposed seatpost you may need a seatpost with more offset to get the saddle back further.

    Good suggestion. Wouldn't go to long with the stem.

    Hi
    I ve Made some changement, i have bought a New stem, 120mm just to try if there is some benefit mov ing The weight front he rear wheel to The front wheel.....
    Just after The changement of The stem it seems to be a bit better but after a long ride up and down in The mountains i ve found that The control of The Bike is better in down hill with The shorter stem.....in The up hill it seems better The long stem but maybe just an impression.....

    How can i modify The position on The Bike incresing The efficency of pedalling....
    ??
    The position of The saddle on The Seat tube is the limit in terms of distance from the cockpit.....of the handle....


    The lenght of the crank?
    175 mm is the actual size.....170could be better?

    Do You Now any software to verify the sizing of bike respecting the size of the bike r????

    I have also thought to sel the Bike and to buy a new ONE.....

    Thanks so much
    Best regards

    That's always the compromise, a long stem makes it easier to climb with your weight forward and slows down the steering and gives you more leverage so the front wheel doesn't flop around when the head angle gets slack climbing up a hill. For descending a short stem puts your weight back and speeds up the steering as the dynamic head angle gets steeper while going down hill. The best balance for up and down is going to be a stem in the 90-100mm range, and then a seatpost with enough offset to allow you to position yourself over the cranks.
