"If it is close you might be able to flip the stem and get almost a half-inch or so more rise with what you have now and not need to buy anything.    It looks like most of the State Bicycles come with 87/97 degree stem and usually ship in…"

"The stem riser will change the feel of the bike when going "no-handed". I would describe it as a "squirrely". IMHO, not the best customization.  As suggested, change out the stem."

Bullhorns, risers or Stem Riser

Hi AllI'm sure there have been threads about this before.My wife picked up a State Bicycle fixie/single speed for me over the holidays. I tested out the bike on one of the days that we had some nice weather. It has the bullhorn bars and I'm not sure if I dig them now that they are just a bit to low for me. I've been looking at riser bars and at stem risers.Opinions?See More

"Rear brake looks like it has reasonably long reach to me.  What size is the front wheel?  Read the size on the tire, it will either be 27 x 1 1/4", 700 x 25c, or something similar.  If  you have 27" wheels, the brakes…"

"Wrong.   Unless you have long reach brakes 700s are an issue on a bike with 27s.       "

"It looks like a regular 10spd with 27" wheels so 700c wheels shouldn't be a problem.  Good luck...I'll be doing the same with a Schwinn 10spd I'm getting froma co-worker next week.  Nice winter project. "
