I have 130mm stems and 110mm stems so you can always play around with the stem length they do a 90mm too...


are these old "quill" stems ? I didn't know that hence my ahead type set up as couldn't find anything much shorter, only occasional later item at 120mm such as this

Aye you've got some lovely marins and it looks as though i'll be investing in one in the future because i'm 5 foot 11''s tall but my bike feel's really short on the reach and i've exstended it with an ahead stem and it still feels at least an inch to short and that's a 19'' frame as well :shock: so a marin frame has got to be the way forward for me lol ;) ..
