    Cool-blue Rhythm 70mm or 50mm stem FR or DH?

    At the mo I have a 65mm stem linked to a breakout + fork. contemplating either a 50mm stem or 70mm Diabolous. At the moment dont do any DH races, but I do like ripping downhill when I do on my gemini. What would be the difference in feel with the diferent stems? and because I use it for everything even climbing would the 70mm be suffice. PS it's a small frame and I'm 5'6"

    Yeah, may go with the small, but as with anything it's difficult to try it without damage. As for underwear, never take them back...

    I had 90 ,70 and 50mm stem and I like the 50 much better... anyway you can always play with the saddle if you need some extra mm's.

    It's all about what feels good.

    Like a nice loose pair of boxers vs. the strangulation of the tighty whitey.
