I think the saddle, being a flite, is just about perfect (and also for my bum, even tho I've moved onto a scratch since. Great tip on the stem, just need a silver post now, don't really like the Thomson or Ritchey one.

Edit- love the 32s on there. It's a rocket downhill, so stable and soaks up all the imperfections that normally rattle thru on a carbon frame. 48mm fork offset prob helping there too. Can't wait to get my Boras dark label on there.

Edit edit- currently sitting at 8.1kgs actually realised it had a shim under the stem, gotta find a nice 1" option

My old training bike...except for the saddle...

Memories of silver brazed Reynolds 531 tubing, 9 speed, down tube shifters and Cinelli's awful misaligned Ti Grammo stems...

I wanted to start a thread with pics of steel bikes with carbon deep wheels. I love the look. I personally have 46mm on mine but am thinking of going deeper. I do live in a very hilly area in Southern California so every ride I do has a few 5-12 percent ascents and descents. I know the only downside I've had with carbons is the descending with a crosswind and a big truck goes by you, it can get a little tense. I'm guessing with 60mm it gets worse. Braking has been great, btw mine are tubulars. Feedback on your experiences descending with 50+mm wheels appreciated.
Here's a few pics of my pegoretti duende 60cm

Bantamben,

Apparently Dario Pegoretti strictly recommends using a seatpost with setback...have you tried this? Great looking bike as well...

I prefer the look of a setback seatpost but getting a fit my saddle woulda been all the way forward and still been short. I guess because of tall seat height 82cm and slack seat tube.
