New photo from crank side.

This is my first ride on the bike have yet lower the spacers for the stem. The saddle is flat but the sloping top tube makes the saddle looks like its pointing downwards.

I want to see a picture with a level placed on that saddle because I don't believe that thing is close to level even with the optical illusion of teh sloping top tube :?

your frame is too small.... dont be annoyed but for me this is a very good example that spending a lot of money is not resulting in a nice looking build.....

I wouldn't necessarily say the frame is too small - but there are quite a few things that are odd about the bike.

1) Very high saddle but it looks like a very short stem

2) The bars seem to be set up improperly

3) The saddle looks like it is pointed down, almost like you are having problems reaching for the bars and getting numbness.


I like the frame and wheels, but there are some things that just don't look like they are set up properly. It just looks a little "funny"

The stem is already on the short side, so I don't think the frame is too big. It looks like a classic case of a bike with a head tube that is way too short for the intended rider.

Edit: Looks like Ghost234 beat me to it.

Some odd things going on with that fit. Saddle is not only not level it is way forward on a zero offset mast. Short stem with big spacer stack. Is this just set up prior to fitting or how it is ridden? Looks to me like a bike put together awaiting the fitting session with uncut seatmast and fork steerer.
Back issues? very short upper body? Triathlete moving to road bike?
May just be an issue of a frame (a nice looking one) that doesn't fit the rider.

The only thing wrong with that bike is the tower of spacers , it doest matter if it's your first ride , the bike needs to be set up wright ,I honestly feel depress by looking at it also a 120 mm stem will be better if you need to use that size stem in that size bike that frame is not your size, but really SLAM THAT STEM! Here is the right set up this is Spartacus bike.http://cdn3.coresites.mpora.com/rcuk/wp ... G_9340.jpg
