Your welcome, it was fun to play around with, but I ended up converting everything back after I crashed and badly broke my wrist (different bike). The reach on the 950 was always stretched since I was forcing myself to use a 31.8 bar. The shortest 31.8 clamp quill stem was 90mm and I didn't want to use a threadless adapter. I tried it with that 950, a Stumpjumper and a size smaller IBOC team and just couldn't get the fit right. I focus more on making the ride stable now, which usually means just wider bars.
