Thanks, I'm pretty pleased with how it looks. The paint is pretty sweet up close. The grey had some metallic-flake effect to it, and looks awesome in the sunlight.

I swapped most of the parts over from my previous bike, so I'm a little envious of your new Red!

Also, swapping to the Ritchey stem, cutting 20mm off the steerer, and losing 20mm of spacers saved 27 grams. Nice!

I'm also keeping my Trek admiration quiet. At least until I can ride one of the new ones.

But I'm very impressed with their new stuff too.

em3 has it right. The -17 stem generally is going to look weird on a sloping tt frame.

Good lord, this again? Fellas, the -17 stem was never permanent, and is now gone. Sheesh! :P

What size is that and what headtube? 56 H2? What is your saddle height?
Please post pics- I am sure it will look great with the -6 stem and minimal spacers.
