    Haha yes and I know it's far back but I just set it so it's in compliance with the UCI rule. Sure I'll probably never be fast enough to go to a national event but if I ever do then I rather be train and comfortable in the position.

    21 pounds, maybe it gets down to 20.8 when I take off the saddlebag to race. And I need to lower the stem.

    9 speed Sora shifters may be the only Sora shifter group in Cat 4 and 5 races. I know my bike is always by far the least expensive, and I'm proud of racing on a budget until I feel like I want to upgrade to a newer bike. The shop I rode past this weekend had a Specialized dealer giving out bike rides for an hour to test their S works bikes -but I thought riding a $10k bike would make me realize what my bike doesn't excel at, so I stayed away. But man, they were pretty sweet.

    those are great bikes- I've looked for those before on the used market just to have as a backup. Nice choices.

    I like the white spokes more than I should care about spoke color.

    Finally a reasonable picture of the bike. This after Nutmeg June 7, won the field sprint in the M45 race. Stinger 7/9 for this day, the 6s were spares, the front Stinger 4 is still unused. Want to put more stickers on the thing, will do at some point. Trailer and Expedition in the background.

    it's less drop than I run, I think. Looks weird because it's a child-size bike. Unless those are 29er wheels.

    Tons of hot bikes on this page. I love the paint on the Allez. It's one of my favorites. I think the foil is an outstanding bike, and would probably have one if I didn't have an addict already. Nago's hot too, and CDR's bikes cray-cray as usual!

    It does look extreme in pictures but when riding next to him in the field you don't notice it at all. He looks pretty much like everybody else that rides low and flat.

    Actually they are 29er wheels. Also known as ISO 622.

    CDR is a normal sized human (about my size and shape I think, therefore tautologically normal), but I think his particular preferred geometry collides with the minimum functional head tube size, at least on that custom frame, which is why the custom stem.

    IIRC shovelhd runs a similarly extremely-negative stem.

    No way. CDR uses a track stem. I use a 120mm -17* road stem. My saddle to bar drop is downright Fredly. I am going try a 130mm shortly though.

    Yeah, the geometry is hampered by wheel size. Can't have a length of 2cm for the head tube, but that's pretty much what's being simulated there.

    There is probably a 20cm range of leg length in a given non-junior field of men, and it's no coincidence that many XL racing frames have a 20-22cm head tube, and smaller racers would need 0-2cm. Of course, a slammed Tarmac 61cm is a tiny bit fredly drop unless you get a flat headset. One of the reasons I was excited to get my Fuji is that it has an 18cm head tube, which allows a lot of fit freedom with standard WCS stems.

    That's the truth.

    I've been pondering how I can get a 4-5 cm head tube so I can run a normal stem (current head tube is 9.5 cm, 2 cm headset, so 11.5 cm total height). It would be cool if it ended up sort of like a TT set up with the stem/top tube in line, but not sure how to make that happen. As it is the bar clamp happens to be in line with the top tube so design wise it would look "proper".

    I thought about a "through-head-tube" but I don't think that would fly (a la Renault Elf TT bike). Another option would be a TT type fork with the stem in front of the head tube (BMC TT bike among others), but again not sure how that would work. The final and most probable option would be to raise the BB so that the relative bar height goes up. If I were to do a UCI race I think that's what would have to happen to make my bars UCI legal (minimum bar height is defined and my bar is a bit low). I think a 1-1.5 cm BB height increase would be legal.

    I have short legs so the whole bike has to shift down, that's the reason for all the lowness.

    We should talk off line, I can check what stems I have. If I have a 13 cm -17 you can use it, not sure if I do though. I have a couple 14 cms (-17, -20).

    My stem is a -32, 14.5 cm. I've held off ordering a second because my black bike isn't put together right now and I want to verify it's actually identical before ordering another stem.

    For a big gift one day, it would be cool for you to get in front of a creative custom frame builder to see what they come up with. Around here, I'd probably head over to Kirklee, and I'm sure there are a couple near you. I'm lucky to have a build that is easily satisfied by commercial frames (at least those on the shorter side of head tube length with less than 20cm on a 59cm top tube).
