The wheels look great, but why did you invert the stem?

I have inverted the stem because a bar too low is very painful for my back.

or (purely for asthetic reasons) you could put the spacers under the stem and invert the stem again.

Looks like a nice ride.

Yes Bruiser,

I think that I'm going to buy a Syntace F99 stem and I will put the spacers under the stem...
