Curious, why not flip the stem to get rid of some spacers?
cause it's a surly.
and i honestly like the look of a horizontal stem with more spacers than a positive rise stem with a couple less spacers.
just a preference thing i guess...and i'm not worried about flex in the front end..this thing is built like a tank.
it needs rival! thats a fine one.
The two bikes that compete for my attention. The Nishiki is my daily commuter, heavy and stable. The Trek is my "go fast" century bike. Comfortable ride for the longer distances.

1981 Nishiki Cresta
1982 Trek 613
1987 Giant Yukon
both are really nice but that trek is just great
however, the color in those shots is bugging me out.
Full campy setup with clavicula cranks and ciamillo gravitas brakes and LW gen lll obermayers. About 6 kilos. Photo taken before fitting.
After fitting was done.[/QUOTE]
My dream road bike. I love Time frames.
smooth and fast?
^ just to clarify, that is not my bike. I just wish I had a similar setup. That bike belongs to leej88 in roadie forum
edit: but, yeah, i'm wondering exactly what they changed during that "fitting"
