lmao how does it feel to have a tiny ass microstem

tiny stems are trending

I actually only spin out my rear tire on that crabbon thing- went from a 120 on the orange one- havent ridden it yet cause i cant adjust my FD on the cheap ass altus- its going to my dad who will never use the gears anyway.

Seriously tho, doesnt having to use an oversized stem mean your frame is too small for you? Barring having slenderman-tier arms of course.
>>

No, it means you're alpha as fuk

Why is there such an influx of funposters in this slow ass board? First the downtube faggotry and now this.
>>
>>951217

Everyone is shaped different, some people have medical issues too.

Unfortunately I have the shape of a fucking orangutan which means tiny frame,long ass stem, and my bike looks ridiculous.
>>
This reminds me of something I've always wondered, why do drop bar bikes have long stems instead of just having a longer frame with a shorter stem?

They always end up steering like boats because your hands are 8 inches in front of the pivot point. I get that there has to be some leeway for people who want to shorten the stem from stock but no one runs 40mm stems. You could make the frame even longer still by not having the drop bars extend so far forward.

Isn't MOAR pressure on the front wheel a good thing?
looks wise a long-ish stem is prettier imo(comming from a guy who just put just mounted a 4cm shorter stem)

>Isn't MOAR pressure on the front wheel a good thing?
I think you may be right in that moving the contact patch further from the centre of gravity would shift the weight balance to the opposite wheel (makes sense in my mind) but I don't think the difference would be very great or enough to cause an issue.

When braking with the front wheel most of the weight is going to transfer to the front wheel any way and having the wheel further forward makes it slightly harder for the rear wheel to leave the ground.
>>
>>951254
Follow your dreams,son.

Btw most lower end stems(maybe more expensive ones too)comes with rust-prone bolts
aftermarket A2 stainless m5x20 bolts and spring washers ftw
>>
>tfw frame too big, so using 45 mm stem

I've got about $200 to spend between new stems and bars. Also the Thompson X2 looks nice as well.

Thomson is arguably the more high-end brand of the bunch.

answer carbon bar and stem were less than $150 on fleabay.- the bolts dont rust. (stem is alloy and a bit heavy).

Ehh, I'm not too worried about weight. I'll save it where I can get it though.

Just bought a used Raleigh RX1 frame in great condition to replace my totaled Bianchi Axis. Now I'm just looking to piece together a decent entry level Rival or 105 CX bike for my first season or two.

Starting with the stem, bars, and seatpost because I haven't made up my mind yet on the rest of it since it's BB30 which leaves me to use an adapter for Shimano, run Shimano 105 and a FSA crankset or just go SRAM Rival, which I have never ridden.
>>
>>951272
>>951277
how can tiny black stems even compete?
>>
>>951278
the wheels mfg bb30 to sram gxp i have is great.
>>
>>951283
That's what I've heard. Are there any cons to running the adapter rather than just getting the SRAM BB30 cranks in 46/36?

Also, I'm just used to Shimano, so what's the learning curve like? Is rival really comparable to 105
>>
>>951288
The only downside to the adaptor is having to pop it out/remember to put it back in when you service your cranks.

To the second, doubletap shifting will probably feel really weird to you for a few rides, but then you'll get used to it. And Rival is 70g lighter in total overall than 105 (assuming complete 105/Rival groups including chain, cassette, brake calipers, etc.), they're very similar.

mine is the outboard that comes with the bb but if i hadnt bought my crank first i woulda just went w/ the sram pf.Plus the adapte/bbr used to be like $30- it seems to be like $70 now.
>>
>>951230
Two reasons, really

Weight - 10cm of stem is usually lighter then 10cm of frame.

Geometry - keeps the wheelbase more compact, which makes the bike turn on a slightly lesser radius

But it is a matter of trend, really. 70ties bikes quill stems were 70-90mm. It's the introduction of threadless headset and bulky carbon stems, along with compact geometry, that allowed stems to grow significantly.

That being said, my road bike has 50mm stem and I love it.

My top tube is ultra long so my bike needs a short stem.

>>951230
A shorter stem reduces the length of the lever arm acting on the steering, resulting in faster handling. Road bikes are twitchy by nature, so any further tendency in this direction is undesirable. The wide handlebars of mountain bikes lengthen the lever arm, permitting shorter stems - the relevant importance of aerodynamic efficiency in road bike precludes this solution in that setting.

Time to invest in several face-plate quill stems. Or a threadless adapter, until you get the fit right

no just the one- fussed as much as possible with saddle height, offset, stem height, and bar rotation but i figure i'll probably go 20-30mm longer than the 80mm i have now and probably will be acceptable then. i get the feeling i'm only slightly hunched over but if i stretch it out somewhat i'll be happy with whatever
