    It has black tape and I'm waiting on the black saddle now. Thanks.

    The bars are rotated how they're supposed to be, shifters are within the guide lines on the bars - I had them lower before but they're much better lke this. Saddle is set up how it was pro fitted to be... It's mostly in the middle of the rails.

    It seems to work for him, I'd leave it exactly like it is.

    Besides his next bike, the Advanced SL, is going to be hot for sure.
    Yeah, it fits right. And the bars are how they're supposed to be, so not sure what's with that.

    i think it is the bar curve that makes your levers look wrong. it looks like the levers clamp right on the curve.

    i prefer my bars/levers in a traditional "flat" setup:


    your hoods appear to angle up. it is a good looking bike though

    They're traditional drop bars, my favorite. There's no "flat" set up. The hoods are just how they are.

    Thanks

    For examples, the levers and bars are set up pretty much the same as these:





    It's just the shape of the shimano levers.. I don't mind it.

    you can get "traditional" round drop bars that do not put your hoods at a funny angle. yours appear to be a shallow drop. i hear good things about them and they seem pretty common but i have hands the size of tennis rackets. deep ergo drops suit me best.


    edit:

    i think shimano levers make it look more pronounced.

    It's a reasonably deep drop.. I wouldn't consider it shallow. 139 mm drop.

    Oh. Well, they seem deep. Whatever.

    I think my almost 6 inches of saddle to bar drop make it seem deeper.

    sorry, i was thinking poorly this late. mine are 145. i just double checked. yours are about half way between. i have slightly less bar drop so it probably evens out position wise, i just need more "hand room" in the drops.

    that picture if my bar drop is deceptive:






    anyway, now that we are completely derailed....




    that ridley and colnogo are nice.

    I like the Helix and I like DA 7800, but I think this would be hotter with 7900. It looks like you already have the levers.

    That my friend is ignorance. Several scattante frames are identical to other brands (lynskey and pedal force) and most others have the same fit and finish than framessets that cost twice as much.

    And then there is the fact that the quality and customer support complaints are much lower than BD.

    Thanks for the comments Herbie53. This was actually built with a full Ultegra groupset, not even the SL. I had already spent quite a bit on the home CFO's bike which was also a Lynskey Ti. The DA 7800 cranks were a new but second-hand purchase off togoparts based here in Singapore. I'll need to save up for a full DA 7900 set however there is a certain Canon 5D camera body that I want to get first. The saying that "the difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys" is certainly true in my case.

    Thanks for your comments, however you have a beauty of a bike too. I really like the bottle cages. With a Helix frame, it would then be "wickedly" beautiful.

    Updated with a few new parts. I've been posting it all over. Don't mind the spacer stack, been playing a bit with my bar position/drop and haven't totally decided on it yet.
