So the definition of "slammed" sub-10mm?
I like the 10mm max now.
The definition of slammed stem would be the stem resting directly on top of the headset cap. Slammed stem would not apply to headset caps like those tall conical ones seen in the above Cannondale pictures. The stem would also have to be in the negative position. And as someone mentioned above, you would really have to use a -17 stem instead of those higher -8 -10 stems. Slammed means as low as possible given commonly available bicycle parts. Flat headset caps and -17 stems are commonly available.
