Triban 520 position

Hi All,


I’ve just purchased a Triban 520. I want to make the riding position less aggressive, I have the large frame and feel like it’s just a little too far to reach. It’s not much but I would just like to be a bit more upright, I use the bike for a 16 mile round trip daily commute through London.

I’m wondering what I should try, can I add any more spacers? Or do I need a stem extender? Is it worth trying a new stem bar at a higher angle to bring the bars up slightly?

What length stem have you got as in the horizontal bit between bars and stem 115mm? A shorter one will bring bars closer so its less of a stretch.
