    no, it's because i eyeballed it when i was setting it up and haven't messed with it since i haven't got fitted yet. it'll all get lined out then.

    oh ok, so when you said that you had it flat but then changed it based on comfort, that wasn't true?

    it was flat on my old bike. when i set this new one up, i eye balled it and didn't even notice it was tilted until i took that pic. i've been squirming around less, looking for a comfortable spot for my sits bones with it this way.

    Is the 34" measurement your pants inseam or your cycling inseam (i.e. the measurement from your pubic bone to the ground)?
    X2

    Angle aside, I think your seat may be close. My bike is 59cm c-t and I have a decent amount of post. If I'm not mistaken, this bike has a 53cm seat tube. I would expect a mile of seatpost. My consern is the bar placement. I'm wondering if too much bar drop is preventing you for getting enough extension.

    like I said, I am a touch taller than you, but here is my fit on a bike that is larger than yours but still sized down slightly. I wasted to try a shorter wheelbase and wanted room for more drop.

    thirdgenbird, that's interesting - my inseam is almost 34.5" yet my saddle seems to be at least 0.5" lower than yours (judging from the pictures). Guess you like a bit more stretch to your legs.

    Not that it's really important, just couldn't help but noticing. I like to compare my fit to other cyclists of similar proportions.

    I've not had help measuring, but the best I can tell, my inseam is in the 34-34.5 range. I ride noticeably toe down so that probably accounts for the difference.

    Feel free to pm if you want a full comparison.

    The way you have it looks like a recipe for a sleepy third leg.. and puts weight on your hands / wrists as you need to resist sliding forward.

    Hot bikes look the way they do for a reason.

    I live in your area...what Spec. dealer did you use to get it?

    I know a couple of local people who went to Endeavor Performance in Nashville to get their bike fitted to them after they popped for an expensive race bike. http://www.endeavorperformance.com/i...icycle-fitting

    I think that bike you have is nice enough to make the trip. My bet is that you will walk out of there very satisfied.

    Because some bikes can pull it off while others can't. Especially with wheels like Reynolds, or Easton high profile, they have a lot of logos. Sometimes even 4 logos on one side of the wheel and makes the bike look very loud and cluttered.

    I guess if it says Campagnolo, it's automatically cool and good looking.

    dat's right....he gets Italian matchy-matchy points with that set up....

    personally, I don't like the spoke-paired look of Campy wheels, period...but this Colnago is undeniably hot....
