Since the dorados are so tall, how are you guys keeping the handlebar height down? Anyone have the race face atlas flipped upside down? How does that actually work?

I have been using the Answer Negative Rise stem and a 20mm rise Pro Taper. Use the drop crown and sink it as low as you can go.....

I have a Dorado with an Answer DM stem set to 50mm, and I also have experience with the Race Face Atlas DM stem on the fork. On the Atlas stem, in the drop/50mm length, and Atlas handlebars, you can get the bars low as long as you roll them just enough to clear the top of the fork tubes.

Basically, for a low handlebar, you need a 50mm stem length. The Atlas DM stem in the 30mm length on a Dorado requires a higher bar configuration.

You can kind of see it in these pics:

I use the same stuff just like i did on my 40. I am versatile.

Don't worry bout the stupid numbers, just run what is comfortable.

I have a Dorado on my DHR and I run a 50/55mm Twenty6 direct mount stem to run my bars below the top of the upper fork legs just like mtg posted. Works great.

Burgtec direct mount stem with Chromag OSX bars (780mm and 310 grams) The bar has a low profile rise, and a perfect 5 / 8 degree, rise / sweep.
