Nice! But that is an obscene amount of saddle-to-bar drop. I don know your physiology but it may be that you're on a too-small frame.

Bike looks awesome. But I agree with the others, it just doesn't look like it could ever be comfortable!

a drop of 16 cm is not uncomfy to me, my fixie is 19cm... the angle between my upperarm and torso are good. I have long legs, seatheight of 85cm..with an inseam of 96cm.... and long arms but smaller torso.Total bodylenght 1m89 .When I should take a bigger frame the toptube also gets longer and that' s the reason why I prefer a smaller bike. same story for my mtb, the frame gets too long and handling controls getting worse. this bike has a slooping of 7 cm, so height is actualy 60cm . In theory they recomment a frame 64cm ....

Welcome to the forum and for sharing your titanium steed. I like it! I ride with a pretty big drop too. My inseam is not as long at 87.9 cm, short torso and long arms has my bike looking similar.

Definitely is deserving to be in this thread here:

Gorgeous! I can see that if you had long appendages, but a short torso that this fit would work.

thanks for all the pos feedback .... I'm still waiting for the ciamillo brakes ( GLS micro's )..... for now there are planet x cnc brakecalipers on it .

I've also looked to replace these wheels into enve's 3.4 but it's pitty to brake on those expensive rims ... a better way to safe the enve rims is a bike with disc brakes.

In side view the drop looks really huge. Especially for an inseam of 85cm :noidea:
