So apparently CDale doesn't make a stem any longer/taller than my current 130mm 35 degree setup. Does anyone have any advice as to how to get bar a bit higher? I've considered something like the Mungo to get the 'drops' in a better position, but then I am also looking at having to get a road stem. I love my dirtdrops, so any ideas would be appreciated.

About the only thing to do is go custom.

a few cheaper than custom options?

Im not sure about ordering from overseas, but here is one option:
140mmX 20 deg
chainreaction?

and also the cannondale website lists a 140mmX 20 degree stem available, check out the aftermarket parts list direct from the cannondale website, maybe you can use the part number to order direct from cannondale:

also, google came up with this shop who for some odd reason has a 145mm X 50d headshock stem in stock, unfortunately their located in chicago, but i bet they're just dying to get rid of that stem:

Dang.

Your current WTB setup looks just about right to me, about the same as I have on the Sofa King!

I like the bar "tops" just about level with the seat.....I think you're close! How'z your position (comfort-wise) whilst standing and climbing??

on-one diameters...

straight from the site:
mungo - " Bar clamp size? They're nominally 26.0 clamp. But I forgot that and ran mine in a 25.4mm mountainbike stem for six months. No problems. No worries."

midge: Stem Bar Clamp size - 25.4mm MTB size (NOT 26.0 road size)

mary: Fits standard mtb stem clamp
