You do have quite a few spacers uner the handle bars, and the stem is flipped up. This gives you a fairly relaxed position. If it's comfortable, leave it. Just one thing, however. If you have an all...

I had one of these. While it is extremely bright, I'm fairly sure it won't last for a century. Of course, it depends on how long you take.

I now have their Quad Red. Not quite as bright, but still...

Not to belabor the point, but tubulars are not a good choice for how you are riding, especially with the tire you are using. This is a cotton tubular and I'm sure it rides nice -- but at what cost. A...
