Dude, you gotta flip that stem - it looks ghastly like that. Your BMC had it right!

Say, how's the reach compared to your other bike? Same? Different? Have you been out on it yet?

a lotta new bikes coming to this forum and I'm still riding my old clunker!

I've only had a chance to ride her for just a few miles so can't say much about the ride quality but the shifting is AWESOME with the new Ultegra 11 speed. What a difference from the older 10 speed on the BMC.

It does look weird so flipping the stem is on the agenda but I'm going to ride her like this for a while.
