Such a short stem is not for road bikes IMHO...

I agree but I am between a 54 and a 56 and I've always preferred the bigger frame with a shorter stem. I'll see what else I have laying around the garage.

I'd think that with a steam as short as 75, you're at least one frame size too big, maybe two.... unless you have extremely long legs and shorter torso/arms.

I am sorry, my mistake. It looked to me like a 80mm stem. 100mm is fine.

No mistake... the original stem he had was 75mm.

Is the Tarmac designed to have the rear derailleur cable on the left side and front on the right?

You can put the cable on whichever side you prefer... some people prefer to cross the cables in front of the head tube and then cross them again inside the down tube. This installation is called the "cali-cross" and some people say that it helps to prevent cables from rattling inside the down tube. Other people complain that doing this causes some unnecessary friction and makes shifting less crisp on the RD.
