Thank you. As I suspected, just a bit short/low in front for me. Stunning bike, but it *would* detract a bit if I had to put a 40mm setback post and an unduly tall stem in there...

Recent eBay acquisition I could not resist pulling the trigger on here: a rather 'vintage' Serotta frame set that I'm guessing might be ca. 1980 or so?
