Picked the 58cm due to the integrated seat mast, as it was, only cut 36mm off of it, was worried that the 56, with its 30mm shorter post may not cut it. Would have been nicer to not run a 20 degree drop stem, but the positive trade-off is it's also nice to be on a 110-120mm stem. My 56cm bikes always needed a 130-140mm length.

The big headtube is the only thing I'm not sure of, but that is more due to cosmetics than anything.

Are the wheels matte finish? Because they shine!

This looks great. How did you get the Spesh cranks to work with a press fit bb? I've tried and it always rubbed.

re: the cranks: Used an extra wavy washer on the drive side, no rubbing at all.
