Very nice bike.

Just an observation not a criticism - interesting set up for your cock pit for the XS size frame. 13cm stem and the 3T aeronova bars which have a reach of 104 mm. How do you find the handling/steering with such a long reach on your bike?

Good point. I went from a 50cm Cannondale Super Six and the difference between these framesets is 6mm less reach and stack so since the Super Six has a similar stem with ergonova bars, I had to go with bars with more reach hence the aeronovas. I've always tried to get on the smallest frameset which has always entailed a 120mm stem so I can't comment on what I am or am not compromising with handling... I just know I am super comfortable and measure my saddle to hood reach as well as the height of the hoods off the ground relative to the bb height so that it matches when I build up a new bike.

Thank you all for the kind comments. I am loving this ride though it is definitely stiffer than the Super Six. Future plans include replacing pedals and skewers with ti versions (~ 80 grams less combined) and the cages for lighter ones (~ 40 grams less) and then a few bolts/modified topper etc and I should be at my 6800 grams desired weight.


Best regards to all.
