to reverse the stem do i just undo the 3 bolts turn it over and tighten 3 bolts back up, i know this will make my bars a bit higher as well so can i take one of the spacers out as well as my stem seems to have 2 spacers with it

    so if i take out the 2 spacers so the bars go lower should i leave them out or put them on the top of the stem,

    You'll have to put them above them stem otherwise you won't be able to tension the headset.
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos
