How tall are you and how long is the stem? I was just thinking, because I have long legs and short torso too, and my saddle height is 80 cm top tube 57cm top tube with 120mm stem... 17,3cm head tube with slammed stem.

You’re clearly more flexible than me, or have longer arms!

I’m 179cm tall, 79.5cm saddle height, 110cm stem, 55.5cm top tube, 10mm spacer and around 20cm head tube. It works for me, and I’m far from upright on it, although I haven't exactly got a racer's 'flat back' position either.

Cracking bike Rich-Ti. I imagine the photos, although professionally done, are nowhere near what it looks like in the flesh.

I'm trying to get some more shots from the photographer - LOADS of detail shots but very few of the bike from the pics he sent me.

The angle on this one is lower than I'd like, but...

You have some seriously long legs... Sounds like the shorter than usual top tube was a good idea :thumbup:

Yep, wide angle lens and about ten feet distance... Hope the studio was big enough for a 50-70mm lens and that he took some chest level shots too... :lol:

too many distortions to be professionally done. would have been nice to see the nice bike as whole with "round" wheels.

Getting back to the serious business - that is the colour of the brake cable - I like the purple in these detail shots it really works.

Great bike! I love the frame, paint and overall aesthetic. Be sure to post some pics of it in action, too. :thumbup:

A side-on shot, finally (and after all that waiting it ends up being an iPhone pic... :roll: )
