here a quick ouside one (but still crappy quality), sunny this morning...
Edited: Here a link to some Cyfac shots, for inspiration:
With saddle height, you measured from center of bb to top of saddle along the seattube right ?
I will be running 74.5cm saddle height, 7cm setback so I went with the L size. It's only effectively 0.5cm longer than the M anyway since the seattube angle is 0.5 degrees slacker.

I'm short legged (82cm inseam for 1,78 m) with long torso, so the Cyfac M size geometry suits me perfect.
I ran a 120mm, 6 degrees stem last summer with 82cm reach bars and Shimano shifters. I always felt stretched out and moving forward towards the tip of the saddle. I went for Sram shifters, 73mm reach bars and 110mm stem this time. I feel a lot more "centered" and not stretched out.
Oh yeah, I also changed the post, and moved the saddle back a little, but had to lower it about 8 mm due to lower stack height of Bont shoes compared to my previous Northwaves.
your cyfac is sweet. are the black sections clear coated so you can see the carbon?
i have a feeling you might not hear from my friend in the very near future. i have the same vxr proteam you have. a few weeks ago i pulled my hamstring pretty badly so no riding for me for a while. : (
in the meantime, she is borrowing my bike.
where in belgium do you live? i love belgium. while i was living in paris, i used to visit leuven whenever possible.

No worries, Thomas. Hope your injury heals up.
I guess I will put it for sale when the Cyfac is done.
I am living at the seaside in Belgium, near De Haan. Worked in Leuven for a while, but it's a long time ago!

Finished building the Open Pro's and took them for a 50K spin last night. Very nice and smooth!
Think I'd prefer these over the neutrons for a training wheel.
Rim weights were 454g and 470g so I used the 470g for the rear. Spokes are CX-ray, hubs are record.

@strobbekoen, no matter what anyone tells me, a nice Ambrosio or Mavic OP rim with Record hubs remains The Wheel for me.
