I think it's only fitting that the great Scrod has made post #10000 on this epic thread. Who would have thought that a thread dedicated to one specific bike would get the most posts ever. This thread should be stickied.

Man, I've been in and out of this thread for the better part of 2 months now -basically since I bought the frame- and I'm not sure how I even missed your post... Great choice in frame! I love mine...There was no doubt when I saw it on bikeisland that that was the one I was going to buy... It's been fun researching parts and building it up... it took me about 2 months and its still not completely there, but close enough... Looking forward to seeing yours.. post pics when your done- peace

Haha, we thought your bike was Cjzoller, we had a discussion on which wheelset would look good on that frame.

It's 6 degree stem, Velo Orange stems are either 6 or 17, and that stem looks too gradual to be a 17.

So will 17s flipped be parallel with the top tube?

Usually 17 degree stems with a negative rise will be almost parallel to the top tube.

73 plus 17 is 90 so yeah, given most kilo geo, it should be basically even.

in this case, probably even use a 17 sloped up and lose one of the spacers ... but angle does affect the overall look of the cockpit.

Yes- as Vixtor correctly stated, it's the 6 degree. It's also more rounded than the 17 degree offered by VO, which I preferred. For the price, it's hard not to consider a VO stem... they come in a variety of lengths too

Do you guys think a 49cm bianchi pista from 09 would have a considerably different geometry from a 50cm. Found a deal on a pista but I'm afraid it would be too small.

I am pretty sure the 49cm has a sloping tt compared to 50cm, which doesnt.
