That stem angle despite the lever hood angle? A -6º, -8º or -10º stem would all look MUCH better on this, and the lever angle indicates you haven't done it because you need it that way.

And is that SRAM levers, Campag chainset and a Shimano rear mech?! :shock:

Hi,
chainset is campagnolo centaur, rear mech is sram force and red levers. I have adjusted the lever angle for my wrists, and the higth of the bar is compromise for driving from the drops and the levers. Scott has higher fork than most others and this makes the handlebar quite high. I agree, it's ugly. First function then the looks.

I don't mind the logo, because it holds allso the yellow stripes under the clearcote..But the red colour on the lever and on the Flite saddle is
propably going to change..
