But seriously, at a certain point this gets ridiculous, right? Is this even safe? Last weekend I was running those black 2.5mm ISCG spacers under my stem, with extra long M6 bolts from a bunch of old star nuts I had sitting around. I think that means I’m as fast as Greg Minnaar.
Can you think of a clearer way to communicate to the boys at Enve that “hey, no seriously, Greg really doesn’t want a -5 degree stem. Oh and a riser bar would be cool, too.”
When you’re running your fork legs slammed all the way down in the crowns to max out head angle and wheelbase, a custom offset headset to increase the reach on your bike, and four count ’em FOUR stem spacers, *maybe* it’s time to redesign some equipment. Do we predict a new V10 anytime soon? Maybe? What about a real riser bar from the carbon boys in Ogden.
