This is helpfull video.. Thanks a lot.
Seem that everyone prefer the narrow version
Does anyone have idea how much longer stem i'll need if i go for narrower one? (That mean i'll switch from 80mm reach Zipp i have now to 75 reach on Easton, and from 42 cm in hoods , 44 in drops that i have now, Easton will be 40.5 in hoods, and 42 in drops).
Should i go from 110 stem, -7 deg, to 120mm, -7 deg stem in that case (one size longer)?
After Reading this, you might consider a bikefit. If you don't know how you're supposed to be sitting on a bike, the money is probably better spent on a fit. The way I see it, you don't need to change stem just because you move from 44 to 42 handlebar or similar.
I know how to sit on bike, and also i allready had a Retul fitting last summer (i have at least 7000 km from that time including few >200 km rides, a lot of climbs, etc...). And also im almost sure that i'll need compact handlebar, and that why i choose Easton EC90SLX3 ( i was wondering should i get Deda Superlegerro or EC90SLX3, since both give flat transition with Campy levers).
I decided for EC90SLX3 because dont have internal routing, and also seem to be stiffer compared to Deda.
Im also upgrading from Bar that is Compact and feel almost fine (Zipp Service course SL-80, 80mm reach, 125mm drop). The main reason i want to upgrade is to have better transition from tops to hoods (there is bump on this Zipp with my Campy lever, which feel un comfortable on longer distances), and also i need sligtly deeper drop (the new one will be 5 mm more drop). Another reason is saving weight, and buzz reduction on bad roads.
I asked the question Stem Corellated, because someone replied that with narrower bar, probably i'll need longer stem to compensate shorter reach (sound logic to me, and in my case if i go with narrower Easton bar and compared to bar i use now, i'll have 5mm shorter reach with 1.5 cm shorted hoods width), so wondered how much stem comensation will be needed. Good thing is that i have spare 120mm stem, so i dont need to spend money on that. And also seem that fitters suggest more conservative way of bar width (wider), while everyone seem that prefer narrower
And while measuring, we measured from bone protrusions on the shoulders. The width im posting (39.5 cm), is measured that way
