Cane Creek makes a version in short and tall heights. It's $42 on Amazon.

I bought one of these and it works perfectly: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/300993295292? ... EBIDX%3AIT

Here's my finished bike:

Not particularly light at 8.5kg, but considering it's built with 6770 Di2 and is a 5 series, I didn't expect it to be much lighter! The ride is amazing, possibly better that my 2012 6 series.

VERY similar build to mine .. I am still surprised with the weight. With HEDs (including pedals and bottle cages) mine weighs 6.9kg.

Also are you using Bontrager brakes or ultegra?

There are some heavy parts like the Power2max and also the Sprinter Gatorskin tubs, I've weighed again with my HED Stinger 4's and it is 7.68kg.

The brakes are Ultegra 6810, which are superb.

It's a 54cm. I must have been half asleep when I posted earlier. It's closer to 8.5kg with my H-Plus Son handbuilt wheels!

Its a very nice build indeed; I look forward to the day when I can slam my stem as much as yours :P Getting there though.

The stem is -17 & 130mm long, I have a feeling that I'll have to change the bars to get that bit more reach. I've been fitted properly too, so that's very close to how I was set up. In reality, I should probably ride an H1 geometry frame for the bar drop and reach that I need.
