    what lengths do echo stock stems come in?

    i'm getting a pure 1080 with echo bars, raceline trials poop forks (shorter than echo forks, not sure how much)

    having never ridden a 1080 (only a 1060 with a 120mm x 5 with bent riser bars, no chance to play around with the setup) i'm not sure what length/rise stem i'd want.

    me being 6' tall and riding mostly urban stuff at a sportish level (70% urban i'd say, i'd ride natural all the time but there is NONE around, you should try living in this poop hole)...

    what would you reccommend for maximum wootness? i can only get echo branded ones easily.

    edit: now comes with each sentence in its own paragraph for enhanced understandability.

    According to the Steering page on the Trialsin USA web site:
    http://www.trialsin.com/sell/pieces/bars.htm it looks like 80x10, 90x10, and 110x10 are the 3 sizes for the stock stems

    I have a 1080 with a 90mm stem and if feels good, but I am only 5'9"

    kewl, 110x5 is out of stock. 90x5 for me i guess. damnit, i think a 110x5 would be sex.

    what advantage does a higher bar give you? i can never find one and prefer low, but i havnt learned mega advanc0r techniques like the cous bros so i wouldnt really know.
