The bigger/longer the gooseneck on those bmcâ€™s the uglier they get. Itâ€™s like the speed concept, a high far stem and high riser makes them look worse than what they are with a â€˜normalâ€™ fit and set up
You think it may look ugly, but I think it actually makes a lot of sense in having the arm pad stacks inserting into the "stem" like a seat post.
I think this design is much safer and may be even lighter than the clobbered together 10cm of stacked spacers, held together by skinny bolts, that most AG triathletes use.
I like the concept, engineering and actually would love to have that V front end.
