Not the lightest bicycle, but comfy.

Nashbar frame - its supposed to be a 60cm, but really more like a 54-56 with the short headtube, so needed a lot of spacers and an adjustable stem. It rides nice, but Nashbar is a little disingenuous selling these things as 60CM.
Your saddle seems to be slanted forward quite a bit. Is this an optical illusion? Is this something you did intentionally? If so, please elaborate and/or explain. If it's just a perception on my part that is drastically incorrect, please forgive me.
