Anyone riding this frame these days? Thoughts on sizing compared to other bikes?

I ride a 73cm saddle height, which seems to put me between a small and medium. I think I'd have to use their largest spacer on the small to get the bars high enough along with a 120 stem.
With the Medium, shortest spacer with a 110 stem, but not sure if the saddle will be jammed too far into the frame and look like a fred....

Any pics of your setups?

I don't have a Nitrogen, but I have a Gallium with the same Headset system. My saddle is set at 75 cm, which puts me right at a Medium.

The geometries of the two are not identical, but they are similar. Even if I were to lower my saddle 2cm to match your saddle height, I don't think it would be too low. In fact, I'd go the opposite, a lot of seatpost with a big stack of headset spacers would look worse than low saddle and fewer spacers.

I've been riding a Nitrogen for the last few years and it's a great ride. Aero, fairly light (for an aero bike) and pretty comfortable (I've ridden non-aero bikes much less comfy).
I'm 186cm with a 79cm saddle height. I ride a size large frame with the big spacer and a 110mm stem.
You can find several pictures of my bike on my Instagram page (
