Had to swap out the pedals, clips, stem, cog, and put on my other wheels and bars...
Totally loving it. I have been riding an SE Draft for the last two years (which I loved)...
But this is alot nicer. he he.

[edit]Oh... as there seems to be endless debate about the sizing... I am 6 feet exactly and the 57 feels great.
seems that if I had listened to strangers on the internet I would have got a 55, but that definitely would have been too small (for my taste).[/edit]

the distance from your bars to your brake lever looks enormous. do you have giant hands?

kidding about your giant hands, but also genuinely wondering about the distance.

My bike has pretty much the same distance to the brake. I keep it in an awkward position because I never ever use it, and it just gets in the way otherwise. It stays there for peace of mind.

I hate that goddamn lever. Its enormous, and its actually meant to be a right side (rear) brake lever.

I really thought I was the only one at first. Glad to know it is not something wacky on just my end.
