A roadie pulled up next to me, made the usual remarks about a fixed gear (that mix of condescention and exotification), and then said, "You shouldn't have your stem that low on the steerer like that." Then he stopped at a stoplight and I didn't see him anymore.
I think he's refering to the 3cm of spacers i have above my stem that i've been meaning to get cut down (when i rustle up a few bucks for service).
Why would that be a problem? Am I missing something about the concept of a threadless headset with my setup?
