I'm a fan of the Slr kit carbonio it's been plenty stiff for me.

That 2013 Izalco looks really good. What frame size is it? Looks smaller than the previous one.

it's the same size (L - 56). I think it looks smaller because of the other saddle, the seatpost is 'longer' for this one because of the height of the saddle...

Just out of curiosity: How tall are you, and what stem lenght are you using? You seem to have quite a fair amount of seatpost showing too, do you know how many cm you have from bottom bracket center to top of saddle?
The reason why I'm asking you all this is because I'm considering buying one of there and I am stuck between sizes 56 and 58 and keep getting contradictory advices from bike shops, and it's always useful to know what others are using and how comfortable they feel with their setup. Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated.

I'm very pleased with the geometry of my bike.
I'm 1.84 cm, but my legs are pretty long in comparison with my body. my stem is 11cm. my seatpost height is 80.3cm.

Thanks!
I'm 1.87 but running a similar seat height in an MTB bike, I suppose my legs have a more average lenght.
