It looks like it fits fine. Fit often comes down to personal preference and I don't think anyone on his forum has enough evidence to say for sure how well it fits.

Nice build though! It looks fantastic. What's the saddle you've got on there?

Thanks! I will be first to say that fit is extremely important and it breaks down into a great amount of different aspects. I sometimes comment on crazy saddle tilt or ridiculous spacer stacks but difficult to say much more than that from a picture...

Saddle is an AX Lightness phoenix. I tested quite a few before settling on this one and apart from the very personal shape preference, I think the impressive rail construction does a lot of good regarding vibrations.

Setback makes a big difference on power transfer and balance, 130mm stem for me, ridiculous. If you have any kind of cycling experience I am really amazed that you can jump to your conclusions without even seeing the rider and how he rides the bike :unbelievable:

I am sorry if my answer offended you but I still think this frame is too big for you. I have seen many "in-shop bike fits" turn into failures.

kgt, he seems happy with it. Let it be please.

You do this to a lot of people. Let them work it out for themselves and enjoy their bike.

You seem to see yourself as quite superior and omniscient to judge and dictate fit from the look of a picture. On my side I claim one thing only: I know what and how I ride. Please believe whatever you like but cycling is more complex than what you say, you could even learn a few things if you were less narrow minded :wink:

I should not feed the troll but actually, what is in your opinion on the universal benefits and effects of two extra cm on the stem and 2cm setback on a smaller frame?

probably posted an iteration already but here's my sl3, as shown weight like... 16.89lbs or something sans bottles lol. The fulcrum 7 and gatorskins are about 1.5 lbs heavier than my (RIP) fulcrum zeros and gp4000s
