I don't like stems with big ugly clamps, this raceface has no visible clamp, it's looks like a quill but it's an ahead, and it's Ti

I quite like this

I'm suprised to see enigmas work being so basic and it stands out as such when compared to the good repair by jemx.

(...I was more referring to the stack height... not the stem it self - it nice though... and by looking at the seatpost this bike is in general way to small for you!)

Haven't cut the steerer yet, I have even used headset cups as spacers to I could have a blast round the block. I ride a 17" pro825 too with identical geometry, I have always ridden smaller bikes.

Ok I will not criticize you, but the seatpost looks bend - or?

:lol: You accusing me of being fat?
It's straight, must be the camera. I even took it out and put it to a metal straight edge rule, its fine and has about 125mm insertion.

Bought some scales, bike comes in at 23lb dead.
Not bad with a suspension fork setup.
