Turns out the saddle nose was slightly up. Now I think I lowered it too much Also need to rotate those handlebars down a bit. In 2019 I will need to pay for a bike fit to properly measure everything (right now I'm replicating more or less how my road bike was setup in last bike fit)...

PS: the lack of tape is temporary. Since I got two levers, might as well use two brakes. Need to buy cable and housing.
Nice! I am also still trying to tweak fit on my bike. I have the opposite problem. Short legs and long torso lol. I just ordered another frame set to build another bike, so the fun starts all over Hahahaha.

PS: I think it looks much better with drops and without that green bar tape, but thatís just me. Keep it up 👍🏻
