ML has the same reach as your CAADX. Stack is 13mm taller. Remove a spacer or so on the ML.

Re: Bike Fit Issues. Please Help

My experience with the CC fit guide for a road bike, is the Race Fit worked best. (I initially purchased a frame, considering the Eddy Fit).

2018 Felt VR4 disk. 56cm is 1.54. 54cm is 1.51.

Tredz has them with 100-off code. Just over budget.

Re: 'Correct' size vs size that feels right?

Agree on the bike that is comfortable to you.

The majority of online size charts still don't take into account inseam for height, which is daft.

My experience has been the same in pretty much every shop I've been into.

Re: New bike decision

How about looking at the Rose Team GF Six Disk Ultegra Di2 for 3899 ?

An upgraded wheelset (if allowable) will get you up near 4500.

Re: Nice frameset please...

I built up a fairly lightweight (16.5 lb) gravel ti frameset to replace the roadbike after being on 700x32 for a bit. Don't miss the roadbike at all, probably as I don't ride pacelines. I much prefer the feel of ti over carbon and I can't go back to narrow tyres after being on slick 42mm+ (mainly ri...
