+1, the super deep wheels make the frame look really small.
Yea I need to adjust the bars a bit.

Deep wheels, well so far Ive been spending my extra time enjoying the ride, maybe soon Ill glue up my 404s and put them on.

That is unless I come across a good deal on some Campy Bora 50 tubs soon.

...so which stem did you end up going with? It appears it is a -12 and not a -10 (with may have been the sweet spot to match the top tube slope)....however, the matched paint looks great? How did u match paint?

Regarding the shifter position, yeah, I agree. If you slide the levers up about a cm you will yield a perfect flat transition from the ramps to the hoods (I own same bars matched with Campy levers) and it will look great, and also provide a long and even perch for your hands.

The stem angle is adjustable and I have it at -14 to match the TT exactly.
A -12 stem may look ok also, I see other guys using them even tho its not an exact match to their TT.

I had the frame paint matched and painted the stem, Im not sure about it just yet, I may go back to black.

Thx for the tips on the levers and hoods.
