The Stolen V1 stem and it measured 53mm. What are your thoughts on the S&M challenger? 49mm 12oz
notorious NIG wrote: Shorter stems make the bars spin around faster, so that might make it easier but definitely quicker. 55mm is super long, what stem did you have?

My frame is a 20.5 and I'm 5'11. When I barspin the bars rarely hit my knees because of all the practice I've been doing.

Why would you say I'm more likely to hit my knee? Won't the bars be closer to the cent of the headset providing more clearance?
sketchytravis wrote: well. bars spinning faster means less time going around which means youre more likely to catch in the air... but youre also more likely to hit dat knee
I love sketchy shit
this is my ride
