|What's the general concensus. Is it considered "geaky" to flip your stem around to get a rise. Just wondering...|

|I was watching some tapes of last year's TDF & I saw
Luis Perez from Festina with a rising stem. He probably caught some grief, but what the heck....he didn't have a triple chainring though.

|Can't find any reason why the stem has to be horizontal with 3 cm of spacers underneath it. I think it looks much cleaner without the spacers.
The shop guy complained that the logo was upside down. I told him to "gimme a break". He has since warmed up to the idea. Tell the traditionalists to take a hike.
Many stems come with logos written in both directions just for this reason.
