While lowering the stem on my girlfriend's Fuji Norcom Straight, I noticed the the stem bolt heads have trouble clearing the frame. When turning the steerer, the heads stick out enough to gouge the carbon frame. This kind of confounded me, since this is the Oval Concepts 760 aero stem that came with the bike. I was able to use a couple of other bolts I had lying around with shallower heads. I tried a Thomson stem and it had no problems clearing the frame. Has anyone else had this problem with the stock stem?
