Is this an option?
I'm looking at a used road bike, its perfect except it was custom built for someone with a smaller torso... would it be possible to add a 1 or 2cm with a longer stem without screwing up handeling or something else?

The answer is on the components board. It gets confusing when you post the same question on two boards.

It wasn't getting any replies... thought I'd try this board. I'll keep it in mind next time though, thanks for letting me know.

I filled you in with some more info on the components board.
Not the length that matters, it's how you use it [nm]speedisgood
