I'm not a Cervelo fan to say at least, but sincerely this one looks really great and without doubt best Cervelo Ive never seen

Nice build, I don't see anything wrong

Don't sweat it, of course your bike is properly fit.

Wingnut stands corrected, right wingnut?

And I was right all along, go figure. That seems to happen all the time, what a pain.

I guess maybe some people can tell an accurately fit bike (or perhaps a bike that is a good fit) without seeing the rider...

Correlation does not equal causation. Just because he fits the bike well does not mean your reasoning makes any sense. Pros ride all sorts of different seat setbacks, amounts of drop, lever tilts, stem heights, amounts of spacers, etc. so your argument is invalid

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I've never seen someone stagger the Lightweight logos into thirds like Enve does. It looks badass on your setup with the Standards.

Well that is because pro's are TOLD what frames they will ride, they are not given the choice.
Your average dentist on WeightWeenies does have the option of picking a suitable geometry frame, yet often ends up with a spacer tower and zero setback seatpost on a bike they were never meant to ride.

Zoncolan is a pimp, his bike is pimp and I was right, what a perfect day!

I can think of a few pros on zero setback seatpost which have gone through a retul bike fit, but hey maybe they should have consulted the Internet bike fitters here, who can tell by looking at a bike without seeing the rider. Who cares about knee angle flextion/extension, hip angle closed/open and back angle. If its a compact frame raise the seatpost, get rid of the spacers and stick a decent length stem on. It may not fit but doesn't half look fast lent against a wall :noidea:

Nice cervelo :thumbup:

It's a really nice bike...

I just don't agree that you can determine whether a person fits their bike by just looking at the bike only & a pic doesn't always confirm this. You need to see the actual person riding as there maybe issues such as hyper extension or plantar flexion in the pedal stroke etc

I think you got lucky on this one reggie...;)
