2005 Cannondale six13 10s SRAM
them saddle seams seem awfully low?
"I tried being reasonable, I didn‘t like it."
"I understand. I just don't care"
This is my new build. Della Santa, Campy 10 mix, Dt 440 rims and spokes with campy hubs.
Almost hot, but the levers are too high on the bars for my liking.
Is that steerer really 1 1/8" threadless? It looks so skinny.
Ah right, I assumed 1 1/8" because of the Arx stem. Is it shimmed?
yes, seems like the only way currently. Although, I am thinking of having a custom stem made once I am 100% sure of the final position. That should clean it up.
Earn the Burn.... Reap the Gain
Eh? If you draw a line along the post, a zero setback would be right at the front of the rails and would look silly. That's a Dorico which does have more setback than most, but inline is not the solution.

I'm not judging your set up because I dont know your proportions. BUT, your saddle appears to be slammed all the way forward and the seat post nearly to its max insertion, with a stem that looks like a 70-80mm. Do you feel this bike fits you or are you making due with the frame you have?
Its a not for me, sorry.

That Merlin is almost hot, but weird looking.
It's a 57cm frame and I am 5'10 with a 33' inseam and a short torso. I have a good amount of stand-over clearance on this bike, but the top tube is too long. Bike is very comfortable in this current setup and I don't notice any twitchyness.
I bought the frame used, so worked with what I had.

...Bro, you need a smaller frame. 33" inseam isn't that insane for your height, try a 54, maybe you'll fit.
In don't want to keep the conversation going in a circle, especially since I don't expect you to sell your bike and do what "we" advise, but for example I am also 5'10" with a 33" inseem and I ride a 54.
