    What stem do you use on coustellier and what's your height? I'm currently forced to use 100mm 5deg stem since the Koxx importer doesn't have Try-ALL stems in stock. I'm 184cm and the steering feels a little bit too low and streched out. I'm probably switching to Try-ALL 105mm or 90mm 15deg stem. But what are your experiences? Btw, I'm using Yourself replica bar...

    I'm currently using a Brisa bar/stem (15 degree, 120mm). I'm looking to switch to something a bit lower like a 5 degree, 110mm. The Brisa feels good to me though, but a lower stem gives me more control, easier to up things. I'm 190 cm tall. I really like the low/stretched out feeling. I guess it depends on your riding style. I'm planning on running a Thompson stem and Try-all bar, when the $$ comes around.

    I am 6'7" (200 cm) and am using a 120x20d stem. I like it, but others think it's too long and tall. The only thing I don't really like is when I've got my front wheel on something high, it makes it kinda hard to go to rear wheel since I can't get my weight as forward as I would like.
