Why? Stem placement should be based on fit, not looks.

Firstly, and most importantly, everybody knows that's false. Form > Function.

Secondly, and of arguable importance, because it will shave weight, which was the original question, correct? But I was talking about the "slam that stem" dust cap, which is anodized for lightness, substituting the conical spacer for la lightweight option, when coupled with lightweight spacers.

Can anyone post a pic of what this would look like without the conical spacer? I assumed the spacer was also covering bearings etc.

I'm open to trying this but want to be sure it's not going to look half baked.

Yes, it's possible: see the pic Bianchi10 posted.

You can get really low with many low-stack stem caps...including ones specially designed for caad10's, which i think will work will with the supersixes, called ''Slam That Stem".
