Thread: XC Sten length?

  1. #1

    Default XC Sten length?

    Individual bike fit aside, is there a common length of stem for a dual sus XC bike? For stability reasons.
    I have a 110mm stem at the moment, am I too far forward which is producing instability?
    Any feedback would be appreciated!

    A lot down to personal choice in some cases..!

    Though I run a 90MM on my XC full suss..

    90-100mm would be normal on an XC bike!

    You're right on the limit of a Medium Anthem at 5'11' so a 100/110mm stem is probably about right!
