Great bike, but that spacer tower is offensive because it is a custom geomerty frame. Why not simply go with a taller head tube?

Anyways, happy riding to your buddy!

THANKS guys for your comments!!

Decided to use more spacers to start with, then will cut the steerer tube as soon as the holidays are done. :)

I just think a lot of times when you see a new bike with like 50mm of spacers it's because the person is afraid of making a cutting mistake and losing a $500 fork.

Awesome looking bike! Did you use a carbon dérailleur clamp like the one Parlee makes?

Pictures don't do the frameset justice, the finish is phenomenal in person. Awesome machine!

But if you spend that kind of money and on a custom bike would you not know your fit already :noidea:

Anyway amazing looking bike!

Love the bike! I love titanium bikes with carbon sections ever since my ct-2.

On the topic of spacers; what if you want to adjust your position through the season? I personally like to play around with the height of my bars.

Besides the spacers below the stem, it's one of the most beautiful titanium bikes I've seen to date. 8)
