    New question here. 03 S-works enduro/04 Talas 125 stem length

    Anyone know what is the minimum stem length I need for an 03 S-works enduro? I'm in the middle of building up the bike. I'm looking at a used 04 Talas 125 RLC, and I'd hate to get one that's been cut down too much. Any help appreciated!!

    It depends on the frame size. Minimum for a medium-large frame is 19cms.

    Probably would depend on personal preferences and length of torso? My Enduro came with a 90 mm stem and it seems about right for a medium frame. If you were into XC as opposed to trail riding, you might want a longer stem to put weight forward. Too much weight forward and it's harder to lift the front wheel for trail riding. It would be nice to have several to try out, if money were no object.
