I am using a 110mm stem. 54cm should be ok. A 56cm frame ha a headtube of 170mm which is 15mm to high.
On a 54cm frame I will use a 10mm spacer on top of the 8mm topcap.

Thanks for your reply.

after a couple of rides, the nago seems to fit quite well. On my other bike I have a scratch nack.

Michel,
Was your previous bike a SL3? Would like to hear a ride comparison between the 2 frames.

Yes, until I crashed it :-(
Sorry, can't say that much about it yet. Just had a short ride. My first impression is quite positive, although there's no big difference in ride quality in my opinion.

Suck to hear about your crash. Hope you are OK.
I too have a SL3 and thinking about upgrading to a SL4 but not sure if there will be any significant difference.

I'm ok, thanks.
Not sure, if there's a big difference. Ok, its stiffer and lighter. But the Sl3 was already more than stiff enough. Saving some weight is nice. Everything else i'll see after a couple of more rides :-)

Is this http://zipp.com/bars/service-course-sl-bar/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; your handlebar? I'm gonna get one like that but I didn't have the chance to see it installed on a bike.

Can you post a photo from the front?

No, its a Zipp Carbon SL TB bar.

Sorry, don't have a picture of the front yet. Will post one the next days.

Right, but I think both share the same geometry. Did you find it easy to become comfortable on that?

For me the Zipp sl fits perfectly. The Zipp replaced a deda campione, deda Zero 100 respectively. It felt very comfortable from the beginning.
