Thanks, I'm pretty pleased with how it looks. The paint is pretty sweet up close. The grey had some metallic-flake effect to it, and looks awesome in the sunlight.

I swapped most of the parts over from my previous bike, so I'm a little envious of your new Red!

Also, swapping to the Ritchey stem, cutting 20mm off the steerer, and losing 20mm of spacers saved 27 grams. Nice!

I was blown away how good it looked. Way better than previous versions.

I'm also keeping my Trek admiration quiet. At least until I can ride one of the new ones.

But I'm very impressed with their new stuff too.

Nice ride, but why the -17 stem? Get an 84 (-6) degree stem and eliminate spacers and u will end up in same position. See http://www.brightspoke.com/t/bike-stem-calculator.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; to calculate difference between two stems and needed spacers to archive same position. EM3


em3 has it right. The -17 stem generally is going to look weird on a sloping tt frame.

Good lord, this again? Fellas, the -17 stem was never permanent, and is now gone. Sheesh! :P

What size is that and what headtube? 56 H2? What is your saddle height?
Please post pics- I am sure it will look great with the -6 stem and minimal spacers.
