Is that top headset cup not all the way in or is it supposed to look like that?

The shop pressed that--I asked them about the space too. There isn't any play at all, but I'm definitely keeping an eye on it.

you should have another shop (or a friend that knows what he's doing) look at it if you can, it might be in crooked.

Looks awesome, but Pistards aren't machined for rim brakes. I would use them sparingly.

Thanks! Haha, yeah I realized that right after placing the order for them. But I have the front brake set up for emergency-don't-die situations, and try to not touch it at all. I just like having drops for the extra hand positions.
