    Just curious, how tall are you and what type of bike did you end up buying?

    I would go with the carbon frame / 105 group. I really like my aluminum Defy with 105, but the carbon bike seems like a decent deal.

    Looks promising, but needs a second bottle cage and a proper sideshot (also preferably without the giant seat bag :)). A bit of color wouldn't hurt also; maybe white saddle and bartape?

    Well, we could argue you were not fitted very well in the first place, or your body (hamstring flexibility etc.) has changed over the years; hence you lowered your saddle and there is nothing wrong...

    I am not sure I would call 1-2 cm trivial. My knees (and my butt, if the saddle is too high) will let me know after a little bit (after about half an hour on the bike) if my saddle is off by 2 cm.

    That makes sense. Perhaps the fitters I have used consistently set me up in the upper end of the spectrum. Well, except for the one guy who fit me by pretty much by eyeballing (compared to the other...

    I would go back to where you were fitted, let them know you are having too much pressure and see what they recommend.

    That said, my experience with professional fittings has been that I have had...

    Even tough I am not a big fan of all black bikes, yours is well done. I would give it a hot.

    Just use the Wahoo app. Not as much fun as other options, but will get the job done and it is free.

    +1.

    My FTP is about 260W but I weigh 220-225 lbs, and doing steep sustained climbs can be painful without the right gearing. I would be looking for at least a 32-tooth cassette in the back, along...

    No. And being a smaller than ideal frame, I doubt standover will be an issue.

    Being just over 6' tall myself, I could make a 56 cm Trek work if it is the H2 geometry. With the H1 geometry, the...

    I like the build list, except the wheelset. I would suggest considering a Campagnolo wheelset instead, perhaps the Zonda or Eurus.

    You don't have to. KMC make Campy chains as well (and Wipperman, if you are using 10-speed).

    A bit pricey, but I think it would be cool nonetheless.

    Thanks for sharing.
