Handlebar stem riser?
« on: October 30, 2020, 02:37:06 PM »
Donít know if the handlebar stems are the same diameters for all models, but looking for recommendations or links to raise my riding posture on 2020 RadRover 5.  Need a bit more height than adjusting Handlebar angles provides.   Thanks

I've seen this one referenced several times on the FB group. I'm not certain but it is worth a shot (plus free returns if it doesn't) https://amzn.to/37TnTE9

Let us know what you get.

Ordered the Triwonder before I saw your post, and I saw  am Amazon comment on poor fitment.  Ordered the Outerdo as you mentioned.  Did an Amazon return of the Triwonder and they state I do not have to return it.  Seems like a lot of better comfort for a small price.  Thanks.

Mudder,

I ordered this one for my Rover 5 from Amazon and it is great.  It does raise the handle bar about a half inch but more importantly for me it allows the handle bars to be tilted exactly where i want them.  Was shipped super fast, like in three days and you can choose either a 90mm or 110mm.  You can also play with the risers already on the Rover if you need too.

So the Outerdo stem extender felt loose upon proper RadRover 5 stem torque.  However the Triwonder brand snugged up nicely.  Pleased with the more upright posture.  And be sure to re-adjust the headset preload while extender and handlebar stem bolts are loose.
