I was looking at a picture of this bike over at the velo orange blog:

It seems like he uses several extra spacers (washers?) in his headset. It that just for looks or is there a functional reason for doing it that way?

My guess is that he is using a tall stem such as a Nitto Technomic and the washers mitigate the appearance of too much tall skinny stem appearing above the headset.
