I want to try a Mary Bar on my Inbred 29er but am wondering how to figure out the correct stem size/angle with the swept-back features of the Mary Bar.

Are there some general guidelines/suggestions to follow?

Thanks.

The forward sweep of the Mary is there so you can use basically the same stem as with a flat/riser bar with 3-6 degrees of sweep. Some riders do like a slightly longer stem.

Most riders end up angling the tips of the Mary bar slightly down (towards the rear axle) for the best wrist angle. Do not be afraid to experiment with the position to find what works for you.
