How well does that computer work? Is it dependable so far? I've been interested in them, but never had a chance to check them out.

Tillquist, can you give me the following measurements of your bike?

Frame size:
Saddle hight:
Setback of the saddle:
Drop saddle - bar:
Length of bottom bracket - end of your bar:

Your own lenght and your inner legsize:

I'm in my mind to buy one of those, but i'm wrestling between sizes (M and L). Your help would be great! :shock:

Hey I have 13 cms on my road bike and it doesn't look particularly extreme and is comfy enough to ride often in the drops.
When you are tall it's rather normal to have a big drop IMHO.

I can't say how it does fit him, but Tillquist's setup looks good to me.

160mm of drop on a TT bike is not uncommon. I would say it's quite uncommon for a typical road bike. I only have 110mm of drop on my roady.
