    Hi,

    I would like to have your comment about the look of this stem on a road bike with standard assembly.

    I don't want that look like a reverse assembly :confused: , it's not beautiful on a road bike...


    Regards.

    I have Ritchey's (84 deg) on both bikes (traditional frames) and I think they look fine. The nice thing about the slightly upright angle is it allows fewer sparces to be comfy, which I think looks better than a ton of spacers, plus it stiffens up the steerer a bit too. I'm not a fan of the flipped stems either, but I think it looks ok on sloping frame designs.
