    Typically - on a carbon steerer road bike fork - you put 2-3mm of spacers above the stem - don't know why this fork would be any different. (That is SOP on my Reynolds Ouzo Pro anyway......)

    I'm not sure about that particular brand of brake rotors, but it appears to me that they are backwards. The "spokes" of the rotor should point toward the front of the bike. Other than that, looks good!

    Interesting you see it that way, it is correctly installed as per rotor instructions

    Let me go read the manual if I still have it. Either way until we are 100% sure of set up, no one is cuttin' anything....

    That's interesting. I only say that because I have owned and worked on many different disc brakes and the way those are mounted would be considered backwards for any other brand. Cool if that's how they say to install them, just didn't want anything to bend/break on ya though!

    I always keep my QR on the left with discs as well, nothing worse than stopping to fix a flat on a long decent and burning your knuckles on the rotor.

    nothing bad about using it on that side at all, it won't effect anything
