    there was also this one, stabilized to gsteinb - the willingness of people on the internet to do stuff for kicks is pretty cool.

    That's me in the hi-vis.

    On this 54cm, you are perched on top of the bike, whereas you would / should be nestled in on a 56cm.. Even if your TT is 57 ( doesn't look it ) your bike's geometry is still preventing you from attaining a flatter more efficient position when on the hoods at the front or off the front.
    Your breathing is also restricted by being crunched up.. That bike may feel responsive, but ( as you say ) if you need to temper the front ends twitchiness, then you will find that in a crit corner mid pack at full speed, needing to adjust your line quickly will result in going down...
    Ah.... Voila les Cannon ... !!

    SDSR stage 2, slotting in behind my teammate after a pull in the chase group (after 5 crashes). He was 10th overall after stage 1, the goal was to at least get him to the next group on the road.



    Dropping the rest of the chase group after my teammate bridged up on a climb. Gassed, but trying to avoid a time cut, which I managed to do.

    Finally have some pics - credit to Ivan Rupes Photography

    This is the attack I made where I was able to jump fairly well, but completely failed to maintain the gap after I created it. The moment after failure.

    Same race, different lap.

    I'm the one with the arm up on the right, all like wtf because the guy to my right came over on me when he saw me coming around.. still got 3rd though! Still leading the omnium too.

    Of course from the pic and my armchair, I wonder why I didn't just go around him, but at the time it seemed like there were cones or something to my left blocking that route. Oh well, next time.

    Probably 3.5 hours in this position yesterday. Neck and back are a bit stiff today.

    Thanks for the consideration, but I'm really happy with the fit, ride, and handling of this bike, and to the extent I'm not lower, well, I've only got my 215lb mass and short, barrel-like torso girth to blame for that.

    That was my point, that you don't have a fit on that small of a frame. Your body size has nothing to do with being more at one with a bike.
    Judging from that pic... If you were pulling the pack, hands on the hood tops, forearms horizontal, you would need to pull your elbows outward in order to be in that position without your knee's striking your arms at each apex of your pedal strokes....
    Efficient power output on the bike dictates an efficient setup.... But OK....

    Pics by teammie's lovely spouse Dawn Thomas-Chaparro, from the Matrix crit yesterday.
    (1) I'm fat
    (2) Easter, so white kit is ok
    (3) the winning break is dangling slightly up the road but nothing is working to bridge or get it back. Many laps of pain. Matrix 2014 Sunday suffering crosswind.jpgMatrix 2014 Sunday suffering alone.jpgMatrix 2014 Sunday suffering.jpg



    This one by me / cell-cam - Tilford showed up both days for the P12 so it was fun to watch a living legend and non-extinct dinosaur in person.

    Haha that's me behind you! While I was still hanging on, must have been the first climb. Legs were dead that day, no good.

    Haha! "Judging from that pic..." Exactly. Maybe if you squint real hard...

    Anyway, this thread isn't the place for fit discussions, but maybe you could start your own thread, something like "Swami Moyene's Fit Divination thread."
