I've been trying to get some comfort out of this Cube road bike of mine, and have put about 1.5 cms of extra spacers above the 3cms that are there already.
The thing is, I now seem to have the top of the stem 1.5 cms above the steerer....the pic shows it quite well.
It feels solid enough- no play at all. But I'm terrified it will kill me. Will it?
