    Skyhawk - mount stem tilting down

    Hey guys,
    just curious as if one can reverse the angle of the stem by mounting it the other way round. Upside down kind of. Seems to me that on most higher end Airborne bikes the stem is mounted that way, giving a more flat and lower handle bar position. Looks kinda cool, imho
    Would one need special tools to do that job?
    Cheers,
    Jan (getting Skyhawk in the mail sometime soon, hopefully)

    Hey Jan,

    Yep, you can flip the stem upside down with a 5mm allen wrench. You'll need to reset the headset tension after you do that, but it's not difficult to do. I run all of my XC mtb stems that way as I tend to like a fairly agressive, low position on my personal bikes.

    We are packing your bike today, and you should be getting a tracking# tomorrow via email. Thanks!

    This reminds me of this video.. anybody ever learned to manual doing this? He turned his stem around like our Airbornes came out of the box.
