Adjust it then.
That's the thing with these forums, people prejudge without any context. I've only picked up cycling 3 months ago. I bought a hybrid, a trainer and trailer to pull my 2 kids, lost 40 lbs from 240 to 200 at 6'1, now love the sport. Bought the Cervelo as a reward to myself, and no, I don't have a snake spine, and am still adjusting to the new position.
The LBS did a fitting and suggested I take it easy and we'll gradually adjust. I don't race (yet), but love the sport, and yes, I know it can be flipped...

If you got a metric tape measure, will you measure from the tip of the saddle to the middle of the handlebar where it passes through the stem also place the crank parallel to the seat tube and measure from the seat rail to the middle of the pedal spindle and tell us what the measurements are?
Seat position is dictated by the knee and ankle position while your pedal is at 3 o'clock it should not be used to compensate for reach. If you feel stretched with that short of a stem and the way it is angled, one reason is that you are new at the sport. The other might as well be that the frame is not the correct size for you.
That bike seems awfully large for some1 with a 32 inseam. Just a general comment based on the picture. I obviously know nothing about you, your fit, and your body proportions to make a qualified judgement. Just saying...

REALLY DUMB QUESTION... please pardon it... how do the valves work on those Zipp wheels? Is the tube valve actually super long, or is there an extender?
