All,

What is the general thinking in regards to riser stems ?

I ask because I see alot of people using them but whenever I see pictures of bikes I never see them pictured unless they are designated as "comfort bikes".

Do they significantly decrease performance in more competetive events?

Just wondering

I guess what you are saying is that any rise in the stem will hurt performance but I have hard time staying in the drops without it - is that more a fit issue or a strenght imbalance?
