I am 190cm tall (around 6'2.5") and have a 91cm inseam. The bike is a Large, which is the biggest frame they make.
We're the exact same size. Good to know as I was looking at the Large and wondering if was the right fit. I'm on a 58 Tarmac so we look to ride the same sizes. Cheers!

Nice bike in general, but that saddle tilt is criminal.

Yes. Had to do that to get comfortable.
Since replaced with a tt saddle. Much better comfort actually for that position and not as near that much tilt :-D

Nice looking bike. What size chainrings are you using?

[/quote]

currently 50/34 (but ovals - so its more sized like 52t) - need to wait for spring to see what is possible with the terrain around here. i usually ride high cadence,as grinding hurts my right knee. will wait and see if i´m spinning out or not. sadly i live on a a hill, so its hard to get home at the end of a ride if i run a 58 single :-P

also, tried 1x, its just not for me...

Are these the same extensions as showcased earlier in this thread? How are they holding up?

No, these are new ones. These brings me little lower and the elbo supports are integrated. First ones held fine for allmost 2000km.
Fit is much better now because I used my hands as a mold. I also desided to paint these black to better suite for the bike.

This structure is much stiffer more confortable vs conventional.

Cool! Different process than the others?
Would love to so something similar, but alas, small kids eat all my spare time.
