    Nice but I don't fancy the job of keeping it clean. :)

    I think Scott Foils look great. Nice to see 105 in silver for a change.
  • Looks very nice but lose the saddlebag :)
  • Thanks.

    I keep my spare tube and multi tool in it though, rather than have them
    Bounce off my spine in a jersey pocket.

    Question: what size is the Scott stem? Length and angle? I want to refine my riding position, but am unsure on the stem measurements at the moment

    Agreed don't loose the saddle bag as that's what they are for :shock: :shock:

    Great looking bike.

    I agree, get rid of the saddle bag, and get something like a BBB tool bottle for the second cage.
  • Needs a white seatpost as well
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    Agreed - thats what they are used for but doesn't mean there aren't other more aesthetic solutions :shock: :shock:
  • ok...........I give up...nice bike.

    Lovely bike, but it would ride so much better with nicer tyres on

    Matt
  • When you take a photo of a bike, it always looks a lot better if you are standing higher than the bike, rather than lower... from a low point the geometry looks all wrong... :?
  • Not a problem, I will take some more later today, post ride.
    I have been acting around with stem height and handle bar position.

    The tyres are there for puncture resistance, a lot of farmers have been out hedge cutting lately
  • As promised some more pictures.

    I have changed the photo angle, and removed the saddle bag for them too.

    Since the first shot i have lowered my stem and rolled the handlebars down a touch.
    I feel i am low enough now, but i think i need a slightly shorter stem, because my hands feel comfortable around 1-2cm behind the hoods.

  • Just fitted a 3T stem (90mm) 6 degree.

    So far having a shorter reach feels good, but a bit high, so may well flip it.
    Next up some 3T AeroNova Bars i think

    I think you could do with a zero offset seatpost if you can find one to swap.
    Next time you change bar tape please move the shifters up, they look disappointed in themselves.
    Have you thought about getting a lighter saddle for it?

    I have been playing around with saddle position, just so happened to be herr when i took the shots.

    I am looking for some new bars, so will change shifter position then.
    I will get a bike fit done at my LBS before buying another saddle and bars though, don't want to change and find I've bought the wrong things.

    Where in your opinion should the shifters sit?

    Here's an update.

    New stem -3T ARX Team Alloy Oversized Road Stem 090mm
    New saddle - Bontrager Paradigm race

    I have only just fitted the saddle, so yet to decide if i like it or not.
    The stem is a 6 degree, and wondering if i should have gone for the 17 now. But time will tell.
