    Ooooh, I do like than!

    Never seen those craks before, how are they?

    Yeah it's tall at the front, but then it;s big all round. Probably too large for me I think really, but it rides very well and handles really well.

    The cranks are lovely things, beautifully shaped and finished. Very nice indeed.

    You've got a good 3-4" you can get off there from the stem and arm pad spacers. Still, it's mainly about muscle efficiency so you're best being comfortable than low, look at Indurain's old TT position.

    Nice bike, by the way.

    Give an old man a break... pushing 50 with a dodgy back here... :lol:

    Even if I could get lower, how the hell do you see where you're going on these things?
