If you're not into the whole French constructeur aesthetic, I can see where the stem isn't as gracile as most ordinary stems.

This is one of my favorite Herse bikes I've run acrosss: https://vintagebicycle.wordpress.com...3-randonneuse/

If you do like the whole constructeur thing- search for images of Rene Herse, Alex Singer, Toei, Routens, JP Routens. I think it's amazing stuff.

I think the nice thing about BF (and especially C&V) is that lots of people have their own opinions of what is cool- it's all under the same umbrella of "C&V", but high-wheelers, turn of the century bikes, roadsters, constructeur, French, Italian and English racing bikes, touring bikes- everyone has their niche- and most people appreciate that people have their niche, and most people even appreciate people's stuff or their interests- even if it doesn't interest them.
