Default Stem

Hi there I have a question about my 1995 Yo Eddy M/L . I love my bike but i think i have to replace my stem, i bought my bike from a very tall person who had fitted a 150 mm stem onto it, i'm thinking of bying a shorter stem but what size shold I go for 110, 120, 130 ? I am 187 cm tall = 6 foot 1 & 1/2"
Are grateful for any answers ,,

// Peter

peter, there is no easy answer. You will just have to work out the best size for your body frame- do you have another bike that feels comfortable? measure the length from the middle of the seat to the end of the stem on that bike and then buy a stem that gives you the same length on the fat. hope that this makes sense.
