I'm aware that this is a nit-picky thread, but that the above is even mentioned takes ridiculous to a new level - that you're dinging a bike because of bar- and saddle-level that's well within the range of normalcy indicates anal-retentiveness of a sort that leads me to believe that your bowel movements are no thicker than an earthworm.

so stating a fact is now ridiculous? I didn't say it was a large amount, I didn't say it was bad, I didn't say it was a not. I said It wasn't enough to make it a not. I didn't ding him on anything, I made a statement and gave it a hot.

Gotta show a fellow IF owner some love here. Hot bike (I do see your speed sensor in the happy position though!). Is that a discontinued or custom color?

You stated no facts. None.

Individual physiology doesn't perfectly conform to a bubble level and, yes, that you even mention when level deviates by a degree or two is ridiculous.

ok whatever. Those bars are CLEARLY not level, I was just making statement about it not being so. why is this even a conversation?

Hot. IMO it might get a bit hotter with a shorter reach bar / longer stem combo (if such a bar exists). Minutia.

I dig it.

Because of the fact that you think that perfectly level is a standard, and that *any* minor deviation is something worth mentioning, and that that's ridiculous. That's why.

ok well thats MY opinion, which is kinda what this whole thread is about. seeing a bar tilted up or a saddle down grabs my attention in a negative way. To me this thread is about art. Art is to be critiqued. Some people can walk by art and not care about details, while others chose to critique everything. Nothing wrong with either way. just like there is nothing wrong with having bars that tilt up a little bit. It is personal and it is my personal choice to critique that. That's the last reply i will give to this topic. You always have to have the last word so go ahead.

Stupid set ups bug me. That one does not look all that whack (probably just a bit of up to keep from sliding forward given the drop), but upward tilted bars / erect stems / giant stacks of spacers, generally point to a bike that does not fit... or a rider that should have purchased a hybrid.

Though you certainly seem to try, the whole thread actually *isn't* just about your opinion.

Yes, because you're hyper anal-retentive and that makes you unable realize that being slightly off-level is probably a sign that the fit was actually tuned for the individual rider to *GASP!* actually ride, which, IMO, makes a bike hotter than one that was clearly set up with vanity as the primary driver.

HOT.

like the blue seatpost collar touch.

how are you liking the Prologo saddle? Strangely enough i hardly see them around, but they are used by quite a few pro teams.
