Albatross bars don't give me the hand position I'm looking for. The woodchippers are close, but I don't think it reduces the reach much, compared to the compact bars I already have.

I could probably get a stem about 30-40 mm shorter, but for bar reach I already have a compact bar so it won't get much shorter. I mostly commute with my bike but I do the occasional race. But even...

Thanks Andy, those are some really good explanations. I never gave the seat tube angle much thought in regards to saddle to bb distance/angle. I admit I did shift my saddle forward to see if it would...

Thanks for the replies.

I think I will end up buying and building the wheel myself, or get my local bike shop to do it.
