2. Riding in the Right comfortable position reduces the possibility of back, neck and hand discomfort especially when riding long distances.
3. By adjusting your riding position to a correct one you may prevent discomfort such as numbness and pins and needles in your hands while riding.
Rule of Thumb Note to adjust your stem to the right comfortable riding position*:
The top of the handlebar should be at a least as high or higher than your saddle.
To find the optimal length – touch your elbow to the nose of the saddle. Extend your arm forward towards the handlebar with your hand.
On a bicycle that fits the horizontal distance from your fingertips to the stem’s handlebar clamp will likely be between two and four fingers’ width.
