It is a size 56, which I ride in as System Six as well and a Tarmac. So should be no spacers at the end.

That's a great looking bike! I really like the enve bars and stem, too!
Was it your frameset sitting at the Bikedress store in Munich a copuple of weeks ago?

Yes it was. Well it wasn‘t mine until about 10days ago when I decided against the venge as I could not get the frame I wanted in time.

And must admit that the System Six was not on my radar due to the horrendous painting they all come with. But this one finally makes the bike actually look good. At least I think so. :)

Did they have youre the frameset custom painted?

I have to agree on your comment regarding the paint schemes. Although I really liked its riding characteristics, when I had the chance for a very long test ride last September, I could not get past the weird paint schemes and weird specifications of the stock bikes.

Not custom painted, but just their frame only option in that color which I think is harder to get. Limited numbers available,

Any plans of offering a seatpost with no setback?
Hi Kingston,

Yes.

- The original Knot post has about 25 mm of setback.
- This year we're producing a Knot seatpost with around 15 mm of setback; you might have seen photos showing SystemSix bikes built with the new SRAM eTap group with that post installed.
- Now we're considering a third Knot post with 0 mm of setback, and gauging the need as we speak. Should we consider your message a vote in favor?

Cheers,
Damon
So how did the considerations about a 0mm setback seatpost come out?
Will we see such seatpost?

i'm considering buying a systemsix later this year and i'd like the option of a 0 setback post

Hmmm... Maybe I'm old but the newer bikes tend to be too coplex for my taste.
