My 1981 Trek 610 is a little too large at 56cm and I have swtiched to a 50mm handlebar stem to compensate. However, it seems to make the steering a bit more sensitive than I like. While acknowleding that steering geometery is complex and handling is a subjective topic, does anyone have an opinion of how short a stem it "too" short? I need to balance the steering with the reach and buying new Nitto stems is getting expensive.
