It did feel more snappy but maybe funky, wonky would work too lol, I dunno. You'd have to try it yourself to diagnose the word. πŸ˜‚

My experience has been that the higher rise gives a snappier feel. And the lower rise gave a sluggish feel. If you're in chicagoland, and coronavirus free, I'd be happy to let you try both bar setups on your own bike for a first hand experience. πŸ‘Š

Good point. I have however been riding bmx and trying different parts and bar angles etc for years and am quite familiar with how pushing bars a degree forward or back affects the riding feel but what you feel when doing this doesn't feel at all like ... more Β»

Don't know how it all works but I'll have say I was surprised by the results. If you've wondered which style stem would work for you and have the ability to, give this a try.

Here are some pics for comparison. To show that both give the bars the same rise. Today I rode with the FL setup for about an hour then switched to the TL And it feels 100% like you're riding a different bike. Super different! Same stem reach, and bar

Please read the post. I'm aware of how taller shorter bars affect riding. I am on taller bars but also on a lower rise stem so essentially the bars are the same height they were before. (I included the math to make it easier to understand this.) The ... more Β»

Thanks for the input but I'm on my same bike. All I did was change my bars and stem. The bars are the exact same height above the ground and reach from the frame as the previous setup. The only difference is 1.5 degrees of upsweep on the bars. The bb, ... more Β»

So while riding a friends bike with a fl and tall bars I noticed it felt really good and started wondering if I had 2 identical bikes with the only difference was that one had a FL and the other a TL stem and the bars were proportionate so that they ... more Β»

Park riders use low SO because it's easier to do tricks like turndowns, tables, foot jam and tailwhip stuff, all of which regularly put your leg in contact with the TT. The lower SO is out of the way so it makes it easier to do those tricks without banging ... more Β»

Added reply in a thread 53 vs 48 stem 3/23/2020 7:51 AM

Maybe not to some but I can instantly feel the diff between a 48 and and 49mm reach. For racing, 53 seems the better option. more front end leverage and stability at speed. Shorter stems help more with tech and slower moving stuff but are a bit excessive ... more Β»

Does at least one of those clamping areas fit 1" bars? Maybe I can run some 1" bars simultaneously with standards so I can switch when I need to.
