    Renthal stem lengths and 30.9 vs35 mm bars?

    Does any one know how there stems are measured.?
    I am in need of a new stem and bars. Any reason not to go with 35mm bars vs 30.9 in carbon bars on Xc bike?

    Renthal stem lengths and 30.9 vs35 mm bars?

    Bars are 31.8 or 35. Not 30.9

    Stems are measured parallel to the axis of the stem, from center of the steerer to the center of the bars.

    Many riders feel that 35mm bars are very stiff and ride harshly.
    I have no experience with this firsthand. Only what I read from otherís sharing their experience.

    Personally, I very much like my 0-deg 70mm Thomson X4 stem, and have never felt like my carbon handlebars lacked stiffness.

    I donít see the point in 35mm clamps. It makes mounting things like lights, gps and GoPros difficult because Iíd have to buy new brackets.

    I don't get 35mm bars. One of my bikes came with 35, and it still has it. No plans to change it out but it wouldn't have been my first choice.
    Do the math.
