Those hoods and that steerer tube nipple poking through could be changed.
i dont mind a steerer nipple.
The Look = win
Cervelo S2 | Zipp | SRAM | Rotor
Frame is a Waterford RS-22 with an original Sram Rival group. Nitto post, stem and bars. King headset. Soma saddle and tape. Wheels in pic and are some Velocity Razor rims on their hubs (Formula) but they have been since changed to A23/White industry handbuilts.

The plum line is 5mm ahead in front of the pedal axel, so we're talking 1/5th of an inch. That has to be irrelevant. The hoods are a different story. Just switched from round to oval handle bars and tried to estimate the brifter position based on the old handlebars. Even ran it on the trainer for an hour before cutting all the cables and wrapping it all up. When I finally got it outdoors for a 3 hour ride (in January) I realized the handle bars needed to be rotated back to be more comfortable, but that of course threw the hoods off. And since it's internal cabling it's not a five minute job to redo everything. But thanks for your feedback :-)
Hope this isn't too off track. And I guess since I have not shaved my legs no one is going to think they are hot :-)

@Kingfisher: I was under the impression that when measuring kops like you are in the picture, you are supposed to place the front of the knee over the pedal spindle, your string and the red line seem too far back at the knee to me. (that would likely put your seat farther back). The bottom of the line and the plumb bob also seem forward of the spindle/metatarsal head to me, which would also probably push your seat back some. Just my 0.02.

How did we get the point where we are now discussing questionable fit theories in this thread? There are plenty of threads about bike fit. Why is this being discussed here?
100% photographic evidence that you probably need to move your saddle back.
