It could just be a bike setup issue. When you're descending, your torso should be almost parallel with the top tube, a lot of cyclists have their bars and/or saddle too high, and it prevents them from achieving this position. You appear to have both a high saddle and high bars......

High bars? There's about 5" difference from saddle to bars and there's only a 5mm spacer above the headset.

It looks allright to me. You are obviously a tall man. You cant expect the same looks with a small 54cm frameset. And without the person on top of the frameset its silly to highight potential fit issues.

I like it. Happy riding.

Thanks, it's a 62cm frame, it's never going to be a thing of beauty Image

Love the build. Bontrager make some nice kit.
I’m 6’4” and ride a 63cm CAAD10. Big bikes like ours take a while to get used to .. but I love a good 60+cm frame.
