    hey everyone, 1st timer in this forum.

    I've ordered a try-all bar, and i'm not sure if i should go for da(try-all) stem as well? well lets put it this way, i got a woodman t-pro, i'm 174cm tall (duuno how many foot) and my brisa bar and stem are just too long wayyy too long for me! so yer, what you guys think? what length and degrees should i choose for my stem? n i wanna try the up-side down stem technique that u guys use! i heard it will kinda make ur sidehop and ups seem smaller or soemthin??? :eek3: :?

    thanks for da advices.

    I think i haev the 90mm 0degreee rise. It feels great and is the best looking trials stem i have seen. Looks mysteriously like a Thompson stem.

    edit: i am on a Koxx Levelboss 1100

    like a thompson stem?????? what? i guess it's black and holds your bar but other than that its not really anything like a thompson stem. well, i guess 4 bolt face plate but a ton of stems have that, not really a determining feature. the thompson is a one piece machined body, the try-all is a shapped tube welded to the steer clamp....

    anyways, the try-all stems are really nice. not the lightest things i think but definately stiff and sturdy. probably spring for the 90mm one. go for 0 deg if you can. otherwise the 7degree should be fine for you.

    i just ordered my try-all/koxx stem, it should be in any time. i also have the tryall/koxx bars. ive been running the bars on a 125mm/15* kore stem, and it feels like poop.

    we'll see how the new stem is, i ordered the medium one with the higest rise and longest mm. whatever that is. :? but if its anything like hell_boys bike ,it will be money ( as in Sick).

    koxx stems come in 75, 90, and 105mm lengths with either a 5 or 15 degree rise. Elan, I'm sending you a 105x15. With your tryall bar that should be a pretty tasty setup. :yum:
