Imagine the scene. You buy your dream bike, but you find yourself stuck between two sizes. What can you do? Two obvious changes you can make are to the stem and saddle/seatpost. In the case of this lovely Trek-Segafredo Domane S5, the long 100mm stem that came as standard meant the shifters were uncomfortably far away. Having adjusted the saddle forward as far as it would go as a temporary measure, the decision was taken to swap out the stem for something shorter. The replacement retained the 7 degree rise, but at 60mm was significantly shorter. Not only did this sharpen the steering, but meant the saddle could be moved backwards to a more neutral position.
