|I'm thinking I'd like to stretch out my position a little more with a longer stem, but I have no idea how to measure my current one for the sake of comparison. I'm guessing that there is a standard way to do this (c-c)?

|Older quill type stems can generally measured by laying a scale across the top from the center of the clamp bolt to the center of the bars.
Newer threadless stems which have varying angles, are measured along the side on a line that runs parallel to the extension and through the center of the bars to the center of the steering tube. If you lay a scale on the top of MOST threadless stems, the measurement will be 3-5mm longer than the stated length. There are exceptions. I got a Ritchey Pro that was measured the old way, while the Ritchey WCS is measured the new way.
