    Added A Little Something To My Headset Today =)

    I have a thing for carbon fiber so I replaced my stock gloss black alloy headset spacers with some carbon fiber ones. I think it adds a nice litte touch to my Motobecane Fantom29 Sport without getting to flashy. Plus I still have carbon fiber spacers left over for another bike =)

    +1. No need for a flat stem unless you're already no-spacers slammed down to the headset.

    Thanks for the advice. When I have some free time i'll get it to adjusted to fit comfortably. But for right now just riding around town it shouldn't hurt anything?

    Also, friends don't friends ride with reflectors. Unless you're riding regularly on streets where you need the visibility, this is a friendly suggestion to remove them. Trust me, your coolness factor will increase by several points!!!
