    Just to quote the picture one more time...



    I don't see whats wrong with the stem?

    Looks-wise...the -17 goes perfect with the just about straight top tube. A -6 would point up.

    The gum walls look pretty good. Very "Euro" looking ride.

    Because -17 stems go beyond level. It points below the line of the top tub. Could always do a -10 which is damn near straight. Not many brands do it though. In fact, Thomson is the only one I know of.

    Actually, Bianchi, not entirely accurate on that one. It APPEARS "beyond level" as you say, because the top tube is slanted upward, which means it's not in line with the top tube. But it's actually level. If his garage door is level, I enlarged the photo and it's exactly level. So on that particular bike, -17 makes the stem level.

    HOWEVER, I'm being OCD (which is the point of this thread, right?) because I also don't like that much of a stem angle either. -6 or -10, as you say, would look better. Oh, wait, THAT'S the point of this thread...

    73* headtube means a 0 (a.k.a. 90*) degree stem is 17* above level (-73 + 90 = 17). On a bike with a 73* head tubed bike with a -17* stem, it'll be dead level. Of course, this is over simplified- tire pressure, relative front and back tire size, fork length and rake factor in to this as well.

    I've used a level with my -17...like others said...with a 73 deg HT...its level to the ground.

    Ok. I think Kcollier hit it on the head for me. most top tubes slope down a little which gives a visual effect of them being beyond level. Either way, I dont like them.

    I think that landshark is amazing but not hot. With some changes it definitely could be.

    Parlee update - you decide which you like better:

    ...ditched all the blue accents and the dark black felt bar tape...switched to gumwalls....flattened the transition to the hoods....



    or previous version...blue accents and regular black tires...overall weight is the same (6.38 kg)

    Starting to like the look of the tan sidewalls. Gives the bike a sort of a Euro classics look to it...like the red CAAD10.

    1000000000000x better, but I absolutely hate gumwalls. Although, while I like the blue accents, I think it'd be even hotter pure stealth black.

    I say hot! I love seeing something pretty and colourful in this sea of blandness that bike design seems to have gotten into recently. It's so silly how they over react to the complaints about loud logos and swing to the other extreme.

    I made a few changes to my Neilpryde Bura sl. Ritchey handlebars are replaced by zipp sl carbon (I needed a bit more reach and these are 27g lighter - bonus).

    Also ditched traditional handlebar tape and started using 3M friction tape, available at home depot for $3 a roll. Love this stuff - leaves no residue when you take it off and it's about 22g to do both sides (takes 2 rolls, but at $3 each, who cares and you'll have leftover). You don't need extra tape to hold down cables being routed underneath either.

    Went from kcnc cb1's to eebrakes. A bit heavier, but I'll take it. Also switched to powercordz for brakes and derailleurs.

    The wheels on there now are farsport 38mm clinchers built up w/ cx-rays & extralite hubs. 1174g for clinchers. These are about 200g heavier than my tubular set, more when you include the tire setup.

    Other than that things are the same. The bike weighs about 11.9 lbs as pictured (INCLUDING my garmin 800 that I forgot to put on before taking the pic. With the tubulars on it comes in around 11.3 lbs.

    Since I got the bike I've dropped 8-10 lbs off my body, let's just say I'm really enjoying climbing right now.
