    06 Stump FSR stem sugestions

    Hey all,
    First of all anyone know the stem length on a 06 Stumpy FSR. The specs say:
    3D forged CNC machined, 4-bolt, 8 degree rise
    I'm just not sure how to measure the stem.
    I think it's around 110. I been reading up on the stem length and think it would be beneficial to go to a 90 mm one for my style of riding.
    Any thoughts or suggestions on length or what brand to go with?
    Thanks
    -Greg

    The stem sizes were dependent upon the frame size.
    Depends on your preferred position.
    I like Thomson stems.

    You measure your stem from centre to centre: So while it's on the bike measure from the starnut to where the clamp join is at the handlebar. I imagine the length would be around 100 or 110mm like you have said.

    What to get? Well whatever takes your fancy really & fits with your budget. I've got a 90mm Thomson X4 which is pretty nice, it's the minimum lenght I could run without getting sore hands from a cramped position. If you do alot of xc / trail type of riding with some fun thrown in then 90mm sounds like a pretty good choice. (Thomson seatposts are considered the best) but plenty of good stem choices out there: Race Face, Truvativ, Easton, Sette, there's heaps.
    In my opinion 7075 Aluminium offers good strength to weight ratio depending on the manufacturing process, so depends how much of a weight weenie you are, what you can afford & what looks nice to you.
