    Geeky question about distance from BB to center of stem...

    Okay, so I've never heard of this being measured before, so I don't know if it has a name.

    Anyway, I like my seat way far back when I pedal, so my handlebars are set so that they feel good when sitting. I currently use climbing bars on my flat bars. They feel pretty good. Whenever I hold just the handlebar when I'm climbing, I feel like the handlebars are too close. If I try a longer stem, my reach to the bars when sitting might be too long.

    Does anybody who doesn't use bar ends use a longer stem on your SS compared to a geared bike?
