    I would go with shorter socks. Ultimately though, you will need to spend some time in the wind tunnel to know what works best for you.

    So, why do you not want to get to far over the BB? Granted you have believers in knee over pedal and various other fit systems but if I recall, most exceptional fit experts debunk the whole knee over...
