    New question here. Bought a Rockhopper, pics and a question...

    Hey guys, I went out and scored a 2011 for a great deal from a local dealer. I changed the grips right away because I hated the brown color on them. It's a 2011 left over.

    Is there a way to easily adjust the steering on the rockhopper? Or is this going to require some work?

    What part of the steering do you want to adjust?

    Not sure what you mean by "adjust"? You can lower the handlebars by swapping some of the spacers from the bottom to the top of the steerer.

    Sorry about that, I was looking to actually raise them a little bit.

    How much did you need to rise it by?
    It already looks pretty high given the height of the seat.

    You can get a small amount of height by rotating your handlebars, but can throw reach off.
    You could go higher rise bars
    You could go a higher angled stem.

    Have you tried lifting the seat or dropping the bars to a more aggressive riding style? My seat is actually higher than my bars

    As said really, higher rise bars and a shorter stem too.

    It sounds like he wants to stretch the cockpit. You can get a seat post that will angle back & a stem that'll angle up higher.
