Is that a matte paint or something "thinner?"
Interesting that your fit required a setback post. Didn't the Cervelo teaM
design with the intention of most riders not needing one? I'm not second guessing your fit, but rather Cervelo's design intentions.
The bike looks insanely hot and incredibly expencive
I have 25mm of spacers below the stem. I would not consider myself to be very flexible. I could always spend more time in hot yoga classes and less time on the road riding and then be more comfortable in a lower riding position. I understand that for pictures a more raced out bike with no spacers is a better picture. I am a follower of Andy Pruitt's school of thought. If you like to regularly ride over 100 miles in a day, then build a bike that is comfortable.
I did not build this as a show bike, it will be ridden long and hard. It will see lots of sweat, some rain and occasionally even newly chip sealed roads ect... I could easily get the weight down with some lighter tubulars, the sprinter gatorskins are some of the heaviest tires out there. But the number one objective is a bike that will hold up to hard riding and rough roads. The one maintenance item will be to change the Norglide bearing, it is more like a Teflon strip inside the upper part of the headset. There are different estimates of the lifetime, I have read 450 hours or a few thousand miles. They cost $20 and are easy to change.
