    Hello!

    Do you happen to know, if Vincent Hermance is using TRY-ALL 17° 105mm stem or 7° 105mm?

    Has anybody ridden XTP long with a 7° stem? It should be good for big wheelswaps, but I dont know about the touch ups etc... I am planning to order a new stem and that is the dilemma.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    he is using the 17 degree. if 105mm is the longest one, he runs that also.

    a 100mm by 5 degree rise with 2cm spacers below it will feel about the same as a 100mm by 15degree rise stem without spacers right?

    I wanted to know, what Hermance is using. I like his style. Thanks for the information. I am riding the same stem at the moment.. I was just curious, that maybe some pro riders are using 7 degree stems.
