No podgy middle managers dropping 5k on a carbon race machine and fitting it with a 60mm stem with 40 degrees of rise. They were all on the golf course.
Jealous much? Just because you can't afford to drop £5k on a bike...
yes, absolutely. You are utterly correct.
Well, what's with the thinly-veiled dig then? No different to someone spending several thousand on a "garage queen" Klein or Fat, is it?
But that's another subject, and I fear we're getting off the point here...
If I were building a retro bike as a catalogue build, wall art, whatever - then it would have to look right, and a long flat stem is part of that.
If it's a rider, then whatever it takes to make it ride how I want.
