    Oi! Now listen 'ere cuntchops, I have old Italian Carbon. With carbon bits and... one of them has carbon wheels.
    So there; na na na na na.

    Dammit, I knew they were old and Italian. :D

    Don't get them wet. :wink:

    I'm not stupid, no way am I risking my life, not even in light drizzle - they're kept at 23.78 degrees @ 12% humidity in a sealed container.

    Stick some TT bars on and use the stem as a chin rest

    Was planning using it as a ring doughnut holder, TT bars though would hold more :lol:
    Sounds like less faff than energy gels too.
    Wonder if it makes you go faster, like carrot on a stick for horses.

    If you can reach the doughnut, no obviously :roll:

    Anyway, this could be a very bad idea for Hoppy.
    (then he'll be looking for a Ti frame lol).

    and loads of clubbie spacers above the stem

    Can you do mine? Stem slammed, approx 50mm of spacers above... :oops:

    of course - be a pleasure.

    from there you should be fine - just leave stem & top spacer on and hack excess off.

    job jobbed.

    very cool stem by the way.
