Alex, I completely agree that two setups where the stem is clamped in the same spot on the steerer (say right at the headset bearing cap for example) that put the grips in the same position are going to ride the same. If one has a 3” riser stem and one as a 3” riser bar so be it. But getting the same static fit by moving my stem up the steerer tube (3” of headset spacers for an extreme example) and installing a longer stem to get the same static position feels totally different on the trail. It’s like steering with a tiller.
