I dont have a picture on me on it, ill get one for you though. The bike in the picture is actually not on level ground, the back tire is on ground above the front tire, which makes the saddle look way more down than it is. I just looked at it and its pretty level, it probably could go back one more notch, but it has never been uncomfortable so i guess i've never bothered with it. And yes i'm fairly new to cycling.

That is sexy. One of my favorite bikes on here I think.

Try the changes I recommended. It should bring you a little lower, but will help with the drops. Rotate your bars so they point at the rear brake and see how you like that. It's a simple fix if you don't like it. Just mark where the stem lines up with the bars.

Don't mess with your saddle if you don't need to.

Hey. You're the guy who races. I'm just that guy!

Make me vicariously live through you, yeah? So you should start kicking ass now, cause according to my calculations, I should have been at 150lbs with a 300W 20 min output by now with a 1300 5 sec and 1100+ 10 sec.

Get there fast. Or I'm going to hobble on over and take the bike and put shimano on it!

If you tried to put shimano on her she'd scratch your eyes out. lol.

And im 154 lbs and can put out maybe 250w for 20 min. At least the bike looks fast.

The link doesn't work for me, Chris, but it looks nice. I'm partial to black bikes.

Yep, but if you look closely, they are Ultegra Sl Rings. When I bought the frame, it came with the arms but not the rings.

The bars are FSA K force light, the stem is an ITM forged Lite luxe. Just something that works and is semi light.

let me dr. watson this **** haha... it would appear the front of the wheel is propped against a door, so it would be a relatively simple job to kick the bike on its rear wheel and plop it down horizontally across the length of the room. elementary!

No. It's wedged in there permanently. I don't ride it.
