Just a heads up..

These bars were made to be ridden in the drops the entire time.

Consider a more upright stem like a Salsa 125 degree rise.

Level off that saddle and ride happy.

..or not.

i tried to find brown tape at the lbs..they didnt have any...

and this stem does have more rise than my previous one, my problem was that it was very uncomfortable for me to ride in the drops...on a few first sits on the bike, this feels much better, i might need more rise though.

the seat is actually more comfy that way, i leveled it off once and it just plain hurt
