Interesting mix. S-work framesets, yet rival build? Either way, Nice looking bikes! :thumbup:

I've had Red on a couple bikes and couldn't really justify the cost difference for a race rig. The s-works frameset is due to a specialized team sponsorship.

Hello dolophonic,

Riderfou, isn't the frame too big for you?

I would love to know how you made it to this conclusion, the answer is absolutely not :wink:

Yeah....I agree. With that saddle height it looks like the frame is perfect size. Short stem says that you have long legs and a short torso.

You have have REALLY long calves and short quads. The fact that you have a zero set back post, pushed fairly forward and a seat height that is fairly high is a weird fit.

I don't think that stem is as short as you think its is. That is a huge bike, and my guess is that is probably around 110-120mm long. It just looks small on such an enormous frame.

Yes, 110mm. Seat height and drop are perfectly in the usual range and seat setback is really a matter of numerous parameters and personal taste...

Anyway, why am I trying to justify a thoroughly tested fit when the original point why to share and exchange on w.weenies parts around a great frame :noidea: :D

I agree that such a huge frame cannot justify this seat-seatpost geometry and a 110mm stem. A smaller frame with a setback seatpost and a 130mm stem would ride better. Otherwise something custom that really fits you..

Will put it on the scale tonight to get you the precise weight since I changed a bunch of things, but well sub 6Kg :)

You could make money... With a genius like you, actual in-shop bike fit is rendered meaningless! 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:

But again, not the point of the discussion...
