There spacer thingy is below the top of the frame so its is slammed as low as I could get
I was looking for -12 stem but cannot find anything that is light .Easton is -10 thought about -17 but the bike starts to look a bit odd. This Guru is stripped down right now, Im going to rebuild lighter .Im riding my trek 5900 sl at moment which I will post when its got its new forks on.

There would be bonus points for slamming a -17 deg stem. Big WW deduction though for valve cap.

I like a valve cap, there purple now and match the spoke nipples and they are the lightest ones I could find.
No your right Hammertime2 , it does not matter what I say I cannot justify them :cry:
When the Guru's back built up I might try the -17 :beerchug:

Sorry prendrefeu :cry: Don't be :x . I did not weigh it . I was going to weigh it when I was happy with the build so no weight . Sorry . The Guru is stripped down. Im going to build it back again lighter and with weights this time. I have just put together my Trek 5900 sl . I stripped all the paint off .Its nude carbon very grey .Most of the parts from the Guru are now on the Trek . Ive Just got some Storck Stiletto light UMS forks to put on. They weigh 244grm but should get them around 230grm when I take some more steerer off . I will post soon as its ready . I will try and weigh stuff as well. shame on me :oops: .
The Guru I want to try and get it around the 10lbs when I rebuild it. Im hoping to get the Trek Under 13lbs.

It's not how much you spend on a bike it's how hard you can ride it.
