What has changed from the original bike that made you have the stem so high now? Looks great and I love the red seat clamp.

my bad back - 10 years of smoking / drinking / leaning forward to play xboxs & playstations sitting on bad sofas in horrible dingy, smoky flats.... and no bike riding... although since i started riding again, i am now a svelte 13st! (was 15st!)
i plan to buy a road bike though and am thinking maybe some yoga and pilates may be on the cards to strengthen 'said back and help general flexibility. then i'll drop the stem :wink:
