Consider it watched.
Well, USPS finally delivered the 10mm carbon spacer so I could dress up the front end of the vitesse noir. The bar and stem are black carbon, so the cheap plastic stem spacers and aluminum top cap looked out of place. I already had a 20mm carbon spacer to place underneath the stem and a carbon top cap, but lacked a spacer between the stem and top cap. I bought a flat hex socket head M6 bolt and painted it black to match and also painted the top of the spacer, since the top cap doesn't completely cover it. This raised the stem 5mm, but after flipping the stem down, the bars are now a net 12.5mm (1/2") lower. I also tilted the saddle down slightly as it was bothering me when riding the drops.
