Is it from center of the fork hole to the center of the handle bar hole?


Pardon the ignorance. Just trying to make sure I order a replacement that is exactly what I need.

Thanks man. Right now it looks like mine is a 85mm length at 10 degree rise. I feel like I am slumped over all the time.

I am going to try something a little shorter to bring the bar towards me and maybe like a 20 degree rise.

That would be a steep stem. Do you have room on your steer tube to add spacers under your stem? A new handlebar with more rise is also an option. But I guess a stem is usually a bit cheaper than a handlebar.

How wide are your bars?
I don;t know off the top of my head right now since Im at work but when I first got the bike they were too damn wide.

I cut an inch off of each side.

I bought the easton EA50 which is a 70mm by 20d rise.

But..............I failed to see that this one is for a 1.125 bar which mine is a 25.4mm or 1 inch bar. Dangit!



EDIT: Looks like the Specs were wrong on the ebay page. This stem is 31.8mm bar clamp.

You could buy a shim for your 1 inch bar.
Then, if you ever upgrade your bar, you will probably upgrade to a 31.8 and you will already have the stem to go with it.

OK. I looked around on other sites and it looks like the bar clamp on the EA50 is 31.8mm not 28.6 like I thought. The ebay page had the wrong specs.

SoI called Easton and asked if the EA50 came with shims. They said no but are going to send me a set via snail mail at no charge.......
