    XL Stumpy FSR: go with 90 or 100mm stem?

    Figured I'd throw this out there for some advice.
    Got an XL 06 stump fsr. Comes with a 120mm stem. I'm only 6'1" so I feel a little stretched right now. I want to get a smaller stem.
    I found that blueskycycling.com has the thomson x4 for a good price of $70
    I like the look and it sounds like the x4 is pretty bad@ss.
    I feel stupid asking for advice on this since 10mm is only a half inch.

    Regarding rise what difference does the 10* make?

    These are the 4 options I have.
    0 x 90
    0 x 100
    10 x 90
    10 x 100

    Thanks!

    If you feel just a little stretched, then from 120 to 100mm is a decent reduction.
    If you go to 90mm, it will make a pretty big difference in reach (total, not the 10mm by itself).
