Omg, that saddle tilt is huge, surely that can't be right/comfortable.
Its perfect. Its designed to be nose down like it is. Best saddle I have ever had.
Can you show me on Pro’s site where it says the Stealth is designed to be used nose down to that extreme?

The EE Brakes arrived (minus the mounting hardware). They are sexy and light. I cant wait to get them on. The end is near. Casette, brakes, and cables then we should be done(ish).

I can't find it. Where I was oringally told about it was from a Specialized dealer who had extensive training on the Power model which is the same design.

Strange combo with the inclinaison of the saddle and the short stem

Saddle down is good if you are being stretched for aero on your bike.
But maybe you have a short torso.

If you don’t go lower in terms of aero then the stem length seems ok. Otherwise you need a longer stem!

And I also think that the angle of the saddle is quite strange as you are not in a stretched (aero) position.

Do you have any pics in the aero position?
Or do you bike only in this position?

Your position on the bike looks fine, but no socks and cross chaining undoes all of that! :roll:

I had just finished building the bike. I just threw on my shoes and went out side.
