What do ya think of this?? Fit part 2.SLR
Jun 21, 2003 6:03 AM
A few threads down I posted my ride for fit questions. I got many good replies. The saddle/bar drop on my bike is a bit large, would this be a good solution? Does anyone have any experiences with the ITM Millenium adjustable stem. If it's a solid stem it might allow me to dial in my bar height.

You, my feind, are no newbie. And that is a fact. If you're going to post like a newbie, learn to talk like one. You should have said, "My handle bars are really low, I saw there was a little ruler on them and I raised it about 1 inch past the end of that. I still need to get them higher. Can I buy something to do that or should I just lower my saddle." It also helps if you use the word thingy or whatchamecallit a couple times. A true newbie would never use the term "dial in."

I just bought my first road bike 4 months ago so I'm a newbie to road bikes...I've been riding/racing MTBikes for many years and just want to get into the roadie thingy.
Thanks for the positive replies!

I think that stem only adjusts for length and not height. There are stems like the one made from Look that do both.

I thought you already found the perfect stem?
I have two of them, on two different bikes..davet

..and I think they work well. They allow me to adjust the bar height according to my conditioning (time of year)and what kind of riding (distance etc). They are a little fussy to adjust, but beyond that I've had no problems in thousands of miles of use. I would recommend them.
