I ave a doubt. I'm runing a 20" frame , 8.75" bars and a crappy stem. I'm 5"3 . My stem as 60mm reach , frontload. I want to know wich thing would be easier like spins , hops , techniq with a topload 52mm reach and 34mm rise.



Thanks.

I think bars are easier with shorter stems because they spin in a tighter circle but im not sure about hops and all that. from my experience though hops are easier with top loads but that might just be me.

This, I'm exactly 6' and I'm running 8.25" Bars with a Frontload and about half an inch of spacers and it's perfect for me.

as i said , what matters is if i feel confortable , and i do. i just asked how does a topload stem change the feeling of the bike. i dont ook like a retard that is smaller than te bars like i most see -.-

when i switched from FL to TL, i found that the front end was pretty twitchy. pulling up for hops or whatever was super easy, but i felt like i had no control and the back end looped out alot. for me, the first 5 mins of a TL stem felt sweet, but it wore off super fast.

im 5"11, use 8.25/8.5 bars. im back to FL and will most likely never use a TL ever again. but as mentioned above, its all preference.

Thanks to clarify me. i had that feeling of pulling the bike super easy but not feeling control , but was not with a topload , i dont know what that bike had lol. I don't know if that would be good to know , i like to have control over my bike , not some fucked up uncontrolled shit. no mather what ill need to change my stem , it's ovalizedi tink. i might go for sundays freeze.
