Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Why flip the stem? The original was replace with the current one, so I wasn't having to reach to far forward. I'm taking it back for a real fitting in two weeks.

beautiful! you need to loose the reflectors though and flip it (more agressive {aerodynamic} riding position)
