    JQUest, the pic is a bit late but here it is.

    if you have stom spacers like the one pictured on top of your stem, you can loosen the pinch bolts of the stem, loosen the top cap bolt, and pull the top cap, spacers and stem, and then reinstall with those spacers that were above the stem, now below.

    if all spacers are below the stem you'll either need a stem with more ride or riser bars.

    in the photo, there is no spacer above this particular stem cause the top of the stem is slanted.

    hope this helps.

    then check out the mojo mag on headset adjustment to finish it off.

    looks like it's time for some riser bars or a stem with more rise.

    like ben said, a bar that's 3" below the saddle is good if you race but a bit too agressive if you do more trail riding.

    You mean I should'nt be flying around like a madman?

    Riser bars or new stem is pretty much what I thought.

    Handlebars, seat post, computer, new camleback, GPS?! It never ends! I've been thinking about a road bike, and fantasizing about how light I could make my old hardtail! I'm in serious trouble! I need a second job to support my habit.
