Hi all, first post. Thought I better put my new bike up and introduce myself. I have been riding for just about 1 year. My first bike was a used 2012 Cannondale Supersix 3 Ultegra 54cm. It was to big for me so I have moved to this new bike, properly fit finally. Was invited in December to join a local amateur team. Looking forward to my first races in the spring. Still learning all the ins and outs. I really enjoy riding. I have gone from super lazy and fat, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and basically on my way into a pine box to 11% body fat and a bmi of 22. I turn 40 this year and I am in the best shape of my life! Amped! I look forward to learning from all of you.

I want to say that Cervelo recommends a maximum 35mm of spacers under the stem.

Ride safely!
Long live the horizontal top tube, standard crankset, and Italian threaded bottom bracket.

Nice bike! Take a look at the height of the spacers under the stem... Might compromise the fork...

Someone should remind him about the maximum spacers underneath his stem.
