    HI RISE 1 1/8" stem options for DH?

    I am running a CHROMAG Ranger 70mm stem with Fubars OSX bars but I need the bars to be higher. Hopefully by at least 1" if not more!

    Who makes a very high quality 60mm - 80mm length stem with a lot more rise than the "flat" Ranger stem? Light weight would be nice too


    Thanks

    What sort of bike [DH] on triples?

    have ya tried flipping the stem and reversing the face plate if ya want the logo right way up?

    If ya want a rise stem similar to what ya got then maybe a Easton Havoc 65mm 10deg rise from mem?

    Or if triples look at Truvativs Boxxer stem 60mm though maybe not enough of a rise if not riding a Zocchi!.

    RF Atlas to the new DM reversible stem which loos pretty cool course not so good if ya don;t have DM stem capability.

    VP Free with an old Manitou Sherman 170mm triple.

    The Chromag stem doesn't seem to have any angle so I am not sure that flipping it would make any difference

    probably going to be easier finding a 2" rise bar than it will be to find a 'high rise" freeride stem

    i know this is probably a really dumb question but do you have any steer tube left?

    if so then add more spacers under your stem

    From the sounds of things though a new fork would be your best investment at this point. chromag bits on an old 170mm manitou is just wrong.

    I have the max number of spacers (2) under my stem. It looks like the HOPE 25 degree is the best option.

    What is wrong with the Chromag parts on a 170mm SHERMAN? Do you consider it to be a really bad fork?

    yeah the fork is pretty mediocre at best. get yourself a nice new domain if you are on a budget or a totem/marz 66/fox 36 if you have the cash.
