Longer stems stretch out the cockpit and put you in a better position for climbing. That's a very old stem by the looks of it, back then longer stems like that were the norm. Check out how long the stem is on my 1994 Cannondale M600...:D

I have a 170mmx15 degrees headshok stem that I picked up this summer. I put it on my bike and it was just awkward. I should have flipped it I guess. I run a 140mm normally. 170mm is just odd.

Now that long stem just gathers dust.
