Looks very good!!
I think 5 mm of spacers less and it would look even better :thumbup:

Hi majklnajt

I used to have it on an slammed 120mm -6° Stem.

I changed it for this 120mm -17° with a spacer, that gives the same fit. In my opinion it looks a lot better like this, and also gives a more traditional look and the same shape a steel frame with a quill stem would have.

here is it on the -6° stem and Hyperons

Fortunately I didn't cut the steerer, I prefer it like it is now.

@SalsaLover... nice! Regarding the -17 stem, that's exactly the look I originally was going for on my C59 initially. Looks great on yours. On mine, being a larger frame, the headtube angle was greater than 73 degrees which when coupled with the -17 stem, the stem angled down ever so slightly. In the end I took out 8mm of spacers and used a -6 stem which actually placed the bars higher and, on my bike, I think looked better too. I had it all worked out before hand though, knowing what I could try with what stems, so as I didn't have to cut the fork until I was really sure where I wanted/needed to be.

But on your size C50, the -17 stem looks perfect. I suspect your headtube angle is pretty close to exactly 73 degrees so the stem looks perfectly horizontal too. I still prefer the look of a quill stem with the -17 setups, but those are a thing of the past. It's funny how the eye can detect such small differences in angles from the horizontal plane. But very nice. I prefer the -17 setup on your bike.

Horizontal top tube + Horizontal stem = Big Win in the aesthetics race. :beerchug:

Thomson X2 -10 or Deda Superleggero -8 degree could be worth considering too... ;)
