I did a bike fit a couple weeks ago and I went back to the standard seatpost. The fitter said that I was positioned too far forward which caused some knee and shoulder pain. Moving the saddle backwards and upwards certainly made longer rides more enjoyable and one nice surprise was a boost in performance. By having the saddle too far forward, I was limiting the use of my hamstrings + glutes, and I was over using my quads... I didn't know any better since I'm a fairly novice cyclist. I should have gone to do a bike fit years ago!

Here are a couple new photos from my recent rides.

I purchased my first powermeter with the intention to do more structured training efforts. After a bunch of research, I settled on a 4iii left-sided Precision powermeter which is mounted on a Ultegra 6800 crankarm. It was a far bit cheaper than the R8000 crankarm which I technically should have purchased to match my R8000 crankset. But when you see them side-by-side, there's very little difference in design and color. The R8000 arm is a bit wider though you would be bery hardpressed to spot the difference

Anyone know what is the max tire clearance for this frame?

I recently switched from 25mm to 28mm Vittoria Corsas (measured 28mm on a 18mm internal/25mm externa rim). There is 4mm of clearance on the fork and 3mm clearance on the rear seat stay.
