|Measuring Stem Rise||patagrande|

I am looking to upgrade my stem--the one on my bike now has a -17 degree rise. I know that this stem goes runs -17 to my tt. I see stems that are -10, -5, 0, etc. and understand this way of taking a measurement.
However, some stems are 80 or 95 degree. How does this relate to the other numbers?

|90 degrees has zero rise. This means the stem is perpendicular or 90 degrees to a vertical line. 80 degrees, for example, means that the stem has either a -10 or +10 degree rise depending on if it is installed upside down or not. Hope this helps.|
