    Hey - I didn't say it was a HUGE purpose.
    It's the spandex.

    I know the stem has got to be like nails on a chalkboard for a lot of you. Maybe that'll keep you from noticing the triple crankset.

    If that is a proper fit you should look for a setback post and more cable.

    I think the angle of the picture makes the saddle position look worse than it is.

    The stem, however, was happy to see me.

    Funny you should say that

    The 2011 Cosmic SLRs have the black, reflectorized decals. I had to control the flash just enough to get that "understated" look

    Nice build, rotate the bars down just a tad, otherwise it's still hot.

    This thread is not for suggestions, should've cut the steerer before you posted it. Not!

    Why do you say that? I run a 16 deg. 100mm stem with a few spacers underneath on a 56cm bike. That's just how it fits me. Not Hot r Not material of course but it's still what fits me.

    I'm not criticizing the fit. It just looks like his zero setback post is requiring the seat to be slammed all the way back in the rails. A post with setback will hold somewhere in the middle. Do both work, sure, but one works better.

    the cable comment was only because the cable looks like it is pulled fairly tight due to the stem setup. In both cases I'm not trying to get him to change the fit, only improve the setup.

    Turn it around so we can see the drive side, valve stems at 6 o'clock - no dust covers, no saddle bag.

    I dig it tho, I like the red and I appreciate the fact that the wheel and tire graphics are both centered at the valve stem.
