He he he he... Old school indeed!! I now run a 90mm stem and a 620mm bar. It's much better now for descending trails, much faster and stable, but for uphill easy sections I prefered the old setup, 560mm bar and 105mm stem... So far so good. I'll post updated pics soon.

Cheers!!!
Happy Trails !!!

So here they are!!!! Same, same... just new bar, stem and seatpost. Weight went up about 20g overall only, position and control is so much better now. I had the stem looking down at the beginning, but ended up with this less racy position, with a more elevated bar. Way better now in downhills, much more control and less need to touch the brakes. In the uphills is just a matter of getting used to the wider bar, but still good. Barends still a must have ;-)
