Is it to small for me?
It rides superb, a very fast bike

I just think it maybe shows a little to much seatpost. I like my bikes to be small with long stems, but maybe this is a bit to much?
What do you guys think?

If you can reach pedals and handlebar, no problem

Still curious to see you on the bike........

I had a Le Roi some years ago..Lovely frame.Congrats!

If the saddle to bar-drop works for you then why not?.Which size is the frame and what is the saddle height if i may ask?

Need to see some action pictures, but it looks a bit extreme to me at least - I would imagine you could be more comfortable over long distances on a larger bike and get the same aero effect by bending your elbows.

Awesome - love the pro look. That saddle-bar drop is the way it's supposed to be done. :thumbup:
