i'm stretched out but i enjoy it and the various hand and body positions it gives me, i'm not sure how someone could ride more than a mile or two with just one hand position but obviously lots of people do, i wouldn't criticize them for it.

I don't 1mm will matter. Look at it on a ruler. It's really small.

Are you still using the stock crankset? If so, you can get a 108mm Power Spline BB here:
