All,

My Sintesi Blade, main parts from my old Cannondale 2000SI and other parts. The steerer is uncut and I have an adjustable stem as I am going to have a bike fit in mid April to get things right so it will change a bit...

    I really think you need to flip the stem and have it clamped lower down the steerer :shock:

    NapD,

    I agree, but I'm having a bikefit next week so decided not to cut the steerer until after the fit and have temporarily put an adjustable stem on so that I can ride it in comfort prior to the fit. I'll post another picture once I've had the fit, cut the steerer and put a non-adjustable stem on.

    Johnny,

    I saw yours before I bought mine and yes I did get if from JEJames. A very good price for the frame from them as it was the last one they had. Yours looks great as well!!

    I'm loving the bike, much better than my old Cannondale Caad5 2000 Si. What do you think of your?

  • I thought it was a great price for a full carbon frame and forks. I found the customer service from Jejames was very good as well.

    I think the bike rides very well. I did the Etape du tour on it last year and was very happy with it.
  • nice bike, especially the pedals! won't your feet get a ridiculous hot spot though?!

    and have you got a post with your TT bike as well? :)
