He's based in Portland, Oregon (USA) but I believe he'll ship worldwide.

Same as mine but you're probably a 6-8 inches taller than me. I have yet to sit on my bike though, but TT is 5mm longer than my road bike, and seat tube is 1 deg shallower than my road bike. I think the reach will be slightly shorter than my road bike. We'll see.

I also have a 57 DF4, but after my last fit, we decided I needed a larger frame. So I am working on getting one.

I like it a lot, but the seat post is noisy. Round holes are good.

They're just old fashioned metal 35cm Nitto AA125's. Light and stiff enough for me, but I'm no gorilla.

Which big brand component manufacturer currently makes 140mm stem in 6,7,10 degree? I found this but I don't want negative rise or too much positive rise idk I might have to settle with https://shop.fullspeedahead.com/stem...-k-12-mtb-stem

3T also makes the APTO in 140 and 150 - you have to order them from Europe. They're not listed on the US site, but I have had a 150 Apto on my bike, so I know they exist.

Hi, ya'll. Back in March, last time I raced it. It spends it's time on rollers or in a parking lot these days.

I have had this for a few years just never took the time to take pictures, good solid bike, front fork is size tight, but they have fixed this on the newer versions of this bike.
