It's a 90mm, works for me. Doesn't look so pro, but that's because the pro's are wrong, how shorter the stem how faster the steering (that's why mtb's have such short stems).

Very nice!

I have a question about the logos – the big "R" on the headtube and the "Rose" on the downtube, are they removable decals or are they painted on?

I also use a slightly less reach than optimal (stem 105mm, handlebar reach 75mm).
A bit longer than you, but i would have preferred a longer stem to put more weight on the front wheel making the bike more stable.
This makes steering calmer in high speed (descending).
Also makes bike less susceptible to crosswinds when using deep profile wheels.
73.5 headtube and 45mm trail stem gives a very short trail (55mm = 23mm tires)
Anyway, reach is stem + handlebar.
Loger stem, shorter reach handlebar or vice versa gives same result.
Reach is reach!

Ax Vial EVO D Ax wheels premium 38T, 5800 grams (heavy seatpost and saddle = 500 g)
With Easton Aero 55T, 6140 grams (a bit more heavy cassette (from DA to UL and wider tires).
