Stem rise question(6 posts)

Stem rise question03Vortex

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between a stem that has an 80, 82, 84 degree stem rise? What does each 2 degree increment really mean in terms of actual rise? Is an 80 that much different from an 82?

Thx..

If I did the math right... With an 11cm Stem the vertical component changes about .15" for every 2 degrees change in stem angle.

Thanks and I will take your word for it. I am not up on my geometry but I will take your word for it.

Reach is independent of rise. The reach is the shortest distance from the center of the stemtube to the center of the handlebar tube. A 90mm reach stem is 90 mm, regardless of the rise.
