- Is this safe ?
People fixate a little on where the bolt is. You could stick a single bolt stem on that, a Truvativ Team or similiar, and it’ll probably be below the cut, and probably no more secure.
Personally I’d be getting it all as low as possible- lower stack headset or stem if that’s an option. But if not, yeah, I’d ride it. The bottom bolt should offer perfectly good retention, the top will still offer some as well, and it’s not a work-or-die situation, if it does loosen you should become aware of it before it’s dangerous. Some risk of damaging the steerer perhaps.Posted 6 years agoJunkyardMember
that seems a little low for me personally. A few mm is fine but that looks like half your stem is off the steererPosted 6 years ago
I would prefer a different stem tbh as suggested above though I suspect it would work fine
The top bolt holds everything in compression so it is just there to allow you to turn – what could possibly go wrong 😉bigyinnMember

Put a crank brothers headset in as they have a really low stack height so it will bring it all a lot closer and you can pick them up for £25 ish, a lot better than one of them extendersPosted 6 years ago
Make sure you keep the receipt for the inevitable warranty return. I’d considered one of those headsets and discounted it after reading the opinions of those who had used one.
