yup, same here... originally the stem on my sirrus was a 17 degree upright, which was cool when i had a flatbar, but it got boring for me.. .so, in july... i changed it to a TT style and flipped the stem upside down. since then.. all my weight is mainly in the front and makes my back more comfortable now. funny thing is.. when i'm on a climb last time, i leaned forward too much that the back wheel didn't grip too well and kinda slipped like i'm about to peel out.. lol.
