well done...

THOMPSON all the way baby...

Unique build and nice choice in parts to make your bike YOUR OWN. (From the sea of carbon clones that we often see on this site.)

PS: I assume some of those spacers will go away as you become more comfortable..?

Thanks. I like the height of the bars and stem but I'm not sure if I should cut the top off or not. To do that you take the star nut out and then replace it back??

That is if you are using a star nut.... Most likely there is an expander bolt in there...

I'm not sure as I have never dealt with this before. It was a stout looking piece of metal glued? into the top of the carbon steerer that the topcap bolt screwed into.

I have the same problem, that's why I have a 90mm stem on my Medium TCR. But I feel good on my bike and that's important too.
