This is my Specialized Allez OSBB. Because of the large headtube I had to slam my stem!

that's not slammed, it still has the standard headset cover, there's one at less than half the height


Still slammed.....it's about the spacers and not the original headset cover. :doh:



Ah, I thought it is about having the stem as close to the upper edge of the headtube......

I just took delivery of a 5 mm Acros headset cover for my Canyon

The bearing adjustment mechanism under the stem is than replaced by a system a la Cannondale

BTW, a Canyon in the US ?


WHAT!?!?!?

That's exactly what I need as even with a -17 120mm it still feels too high somehow. How much is it for this headset cover? Do you have any pictures of it on your bike?

Don't know what's scarier, the stem angle or the saddle angle!

Slammed!

On my current bike I'm using longer reach classic bend bars instead of compact shape, so the hoods are at the same height but the tops and are about 20mm higher. Much better that way IMO.

That's what a road bike should look like!
