Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

lol

A Litespeed is hot at heart.

I'll tweak her to make her hot.
Getting rid of the bottle, the lights, those HED stickers, and a better background might help.

well in theory...front wheel should be "cutting" the air and the rear wheel suppose to be "light" to peddle.

in reality, your rear wheel cuts the air too .

have you been fit on that bike? or is the tt just uber long? a shorter stem may help your knees.

I think the TopTube is too long probably. A lot of people here laugh, but i felt great on a TT bike (Specialized Transition 2009), but a lot of people were talking crap which made me change to this bike...sort of regretting it now :/

You should be able to make that work but it does seem set up kinda funny..

The mismatching wheels don't look good. The setup it's funky. The frame size can probably work, but start over with the fitting. Start from the pedals and let your leg length and proportions determine your saddle position. If you need to, you can go to a 0-setback post. Once your saddle position is set, let your reach determine your bar position relative to the saddle - switch out the stem for a different length, it necessary.

Haha true, its just internet, nothing personal.

Well now that i aligned the two frame to the best i could, I see that TT frame had a stem about 1/2 inch shorter and and inch lower.
