At the mo I have a 65mm stem linked to a breakout + fork. contemplating either a 50mm stem or 70mm Diabolous. At the moment dont do any DH races, but I do like ripping downhill when I do on my gemini. What would be the difference in feel with the diferent stems? and because I use it for everything even climbing would the 70mm be suffice. PS it's a small frame and I'm 5'6"

the answer is alot like picking out underwear....
since your small get the small one. i personally dont run over a 50mm on any of my bikes. longer stems feel trippy

Small

Yeah, may go with the small, but as with anything it's difficult to try it without damage. As for underwear, never take them back...

I had 90 ,70 and 50mm stem and I like the 50 much better... anyway you can always play with the saddle if you need some extra mm's.

It's all about what feels good.

Like a nice loose pair of boxers vs. the strangulation of the tighty ******. :eek:
