    Flipping the stem on a Trek 7.3 FX

    I have been reading threads on "flipping the stem" to create more of an aerodynamic stance. Is this recommended? A little bit of an aerodynamic stance may help right against the wind. Is this easy to do? Can I undo this if it does not work out?

    Yes. Easy to do and undo. I actually was trying out new grips and flipped the stem and lowered the bars by a spacer halfway through a ride yesterday just using my little multitool I carry in my saddlebag.
