    im after a new stem but no idea what to get . Im 5ft 9in and ride a orange zero the stem I have now . Is a world force 25 degree rise and about 90 mm in length . I thought about someting longer.Would this make it easier on the back wheel?
    thanks

    longer stems make it a little eaier to backhweel stuff... 25 degree is insane though. i would recommend a 100-110 mm with like a 10-15 degree rise, really depends on how stretched you feel on your current set up. i am sure you will ike a lower stem though. thomson, tryall, titec,ritchey, etc make nice stems.
