Hi Guys

I have a Reparto Corse Alloy 6061, Oversize, 1 1/8" stem on my bike but wanting something that is a) shorter and b) with a bigger drop.

How do I know the length and drop of this stem?



  • Measure it with a tape measure and protractor

    Measuring the length will be centre to centre, for the angle if you don't have a protractor, it should be written on it :)

    And at a rough guess, most default kit stems are about 6 or 7 degrees.
