    Actually, I picked this bike up used locally and never adjusted a thing. Have been riding it with no issues, but after this thread I will look into making some adjustments...Thanks for the info

    Dont take this thread personally, but take some of the info seriously. If you are new to cycling, it may feel ok to you now, but you dont really know what you're looking for. Taking it to a bike shop for a fitting can be a great way to get you in the generally correct position. From there you can make small adjustments to make it fit better for you. This thread is specifically about how the bike looks, not how it fits for you.

    that being said, as of now, its a not for me. I know the bike is being photographed at a weird angle, but those bars are hideous. bars being higher than saddle automatically gives this a not no matter what.

    I have never, not once, seen a speed sensor on a front fork on the NDS.

    Your garage doors are silly.

    Appreciate all the feedback.
    Now that I've gone EPS with the Noah Pro, I'm planning to do the same with the De Rosa and build it up with Record EPS.

    Ditto: Once they started doing the "squiggly" forks and seatstays, it made them slightly butt-ugly. Wiggo sure knows how to ride one though!

    It's not a garage door. It's way better.

    Hot.

    ...way down there!

    I'm way up next to Lake Pleasant, on the upside, not a bad place to ride a bike.

    better picture allows me to retract my earlier critique ref having tail dragged in a vat of highway striping paint...enough black plastic showing to warrant very nearly hot from me...

If you don't want (or can't) spend the money on a pro fit, just get on youtube and search for bike fit, and there is a lot of things that you can learn. You may need to do the rough adjustment at home, then ride it for a little, then pay for the pro fit. Right now, as a beginner, you don't know what feels right or wrong... Just my .02.
