    this is just my personal thoughts here:

    koodos on trying something new with the bartape, but I dont think it goes well with it. looks like you could use a zero setback seatpost in a bad way.

    I say, get a -6 degree stem, slam it down. white saddle, white bartape, then cut that periscope (steering tube) and this would be pretty nice.

    Saddle is in its optimal position for bike fit.

    Thanks bianchi for the opinion. The saddle is not really slammed, and if I get a zero-setback it looks like it'd be too far forward.

    I think the 17 degree, 100mm Thomson looks weird and is definitely too short for me. So I have a Ritchey C260 on the way And I'll probably just put black tape on for now.

    zero set back wouldn't be to far forward, it would put the clamp in the dead middle of your saddle instead of clamping at the back of the rails. Having rails clamped in the very back can put stress on the rails which can increase the chances of them breaking. Not saying it WILL happen, but it can increase the chances.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated. I've got a set of reynolds 46 in the mail, will post back once those are up and running.

    If one overlooks the predominant logos, this Cannondale is set up very nice and should improve with the aero look wheels...

    thats a great view of the back of your saddle. C'mon man, been around since 2008, almost 1000 posts and you're posting a picture of your bike in this thread like that?

    So I clicked on the photo of the back of that bike and got to see the rest of the images. The saddle is pointed up in the nose (ouch!) and the stem is also pointing up. Both are set up such that I think you should go get a proper fitting for the bike.

    002_zps89b49606.jpgFollowing your link to your photobucket I am going to say not. The brooks saddle doesn't work with the frame. The handle bars and shifters look to be in an odd position. I don't really care for the the wavy forks and seat stays. Is that a reflector on the seat post?

    I believe brooks saddles are supposed angled up slightly. At least that's what I've read a million time in the Fixed Gear Forum.

    They sure are. They also dont go on carbon fiber bikes?! Why talk about how much your bike weighs when you could drop a full pound by changing saddles? Its hard for me to comment because this looks terrible. I get it if you are a brooks fan, but this is an aesthetics based thread.

    Woo, I was right. But yeah, classic leather saddles belong on classic steel bikes in my opinion.

    You changed your floor tiles. I prefer the old ones, but that's just me.

    LOL - not. I'm tired of all the shots with computers (Cateye Stealth 50) and bottles removed, thought tis time for a nu'trend. Floor tiles are still the same Seats been repositioned, slightly back, relevelled, and the stems been lowered by 10mm.

    LOL nvm then. I guess it was just the lighting, since the colors of the tiles are really different in your two pics:
