Thanks for the responses. I had a 105mm stem on my '11 ex9 from a frame swap. Felt too stretched out. Just installed a 90mm on it and it feels much better. It is a 19.5" frame so from what I gather, it came stock with a 100mm stem. I wouldnt think going from 105mm to 100mm would make much of a difference and since most companies dont make a 95mm stem, i opted for a 90mm. Any issues I may run into running a 90mm stem on a frame as large as 19.5?

My 2010 ex6 (19.5") came with a 105mm @ 10 degrees.
Bonty SSR 10 degree I assume? I think we're talking about the same exact stem here. This is what got swapped from my GF HiFi to my new EX9 frame.

I feel way too stretched out on my 19.5" as well....i'm 6'2" but most of that height is in my legs. I was actually considering a 70mm-ish stem.
Good to know... I thought I was the only one feeling too stretched out. My 90mm seems to be doing well right now. Not as stretched out now and not feeling crunched in the cockpit.

It's normally like $75 (I believe), but I think this is the 2010 model. For the '11, there is a sweet orange one, but I wasn't gonna pay that price for it.

I kind of sat on my bike imagining where the bars are gonna land, and i'm only 50% sure that i'm gonna like it. If not, I found a 70mm @ 17deg which might do the trick (about $30 as well)
