I'm a little taller than you so saddle height is 82.8, drop to bars 13.8. There are 667 frames (in my database) that will match my position with less than 25mm of spacers and a stem between 110-130. I don't know that the list of all of those would help much. Are there any brands you're particularly keen on?

Thanks for the reply. No particular preference as far as brand goes, main deciding factor is likely to be value for money. The intention is to race on it though. Double checked current seat height as 82.5cm i currently ride a cannondale caad 7 with 1.5cm of spacers and a 110mm stem.

(ps great photos of the TTs at junior tours)

Are you on a 58 or a 60? Do you like the ride of the CAAD7?
What is your priority - speed (aero) above all else or ride/handling first?
I got pricing through on Felt ARs the other day and am seriously considering getting one myself. Yes I know I suggested Felt last time too.

I still haven't worked out what I do differently with the photos that come out really clearly and the ones that are a bit blurry, being a bit OC this really bugs me. But it keeps me out of trouble when I go to races to support my clients.

its a 60, could potentially shed the spacers but I had other issues that needed sorting till recently.
On one hand I like to push the boat a bit, but its probably safer to be looking at a more balanced position.

I was looking at bikes at your last suggestion but I wound up having to take a long break due to a hip injury which has wrecked my last 2 seasons, (and lack of fitness from my break isnt helping this one) I would have loved to do the tours this year but I really wasn't ready

At first i hated the caad but since my latest refit I prefer it a lot to my last bike, I dont exactly have a a wide range of bikes to compare the experience to though
