How close do your brake levers get to that top tube if you turn the bars? I'm deciding between this and the new Spitfire but that subtle arch in the TT makes me wonder, especially since I like my levers angled pretty steep.

I ran my stem without spacers under it, it's a 65mm 10 degrees rise with a bar that has an inch of a rise and my brake levers don't touch the TT, and I also point them quite down, so no problem at all.

No problem - about 1.5" of clearance while using 70mm x 6* stem, deity bars, and XTR levers. And this is on a Small sized frame.

Good to hear. Looks like I'm running out of excuses for not buying this thing. So is it really good for pedaling around all day if you're so inclined?

I've had the rubber boot that covers the contact adjust on my Elixir CR's touch my TT when I had the front end super low. Now, I have it set where those rubber boots barely clear the TT, albeit the bars are definitely low.
