i'd like to try running a 150 on the ol ridley

but

i gotta pay for a bunch of races, just got some crap fixed on my truck....

a new stem ain't exactly in the budget

anybody have a 26.0 150 i could try out for a while? -10 or -6 would do it....

no joke

i thought somebody might have one in their parts box at home

i've got four or five 120-140 stems here i don't use

so, you know, you try things

so maybe i try one out for a week

if it works, i buy a 150 oval after i get paid in august

i went ahead and blew money i shouldn't have on a 150 oval stem

now i can have daniel becke and obtuse as my heroes in the "six footers who ride 56cm bikes with 150 stems" club.

Wow, that (to me) is impressive and outrageous.

I'm a six footer that can't even ride a 120 stem on a 58cm.

But, I only have 33" arms.

Post a pic, OK?
