Hope one of you guys can help me out here. Some may recall the thread in the commuting section about getting rid of my road bike as couldn't get on with the drops. I've given the bike a good clean today and for some reason my attention was brought to the stem. I *think* it has been on the wrong way since I had the bike!!! The stem was angled down and I twisted the handle bars up when I first had the bike to make things easier! I have now put the stem the right way up (I think) and been for a traverse around the block and it feels so much better. Am I right? The stem is a Bontrager select 17 D, the bike a Trek 1.2 Pilot WSD. Looking at the bike on the web, it does look like a slight rise. I feel a right sledge at the moment!!! I can't believe I have been getting really pissed off with myself and the bike, and even trying to sell it. BTW - the stem was already fitted when the bike was delivered, so at least I didn;t cock up there aswell!
