    I'm 5" 11', so I'm in-between sizes. Perfect fit for me with a 32mm stem:)

    That saddle shape probably makes it look worse, but that angle looks nose heavy.
    I'm glad you mentioned the stem is non-permanent because it's an eyesore on what is largely a beautiful looking bike!! What are you replacing it with? and I take it you'll cut the steerer at that point as well?

    Surely a personal preference? I tend to have my saddle neutral to forward dip, where as some mates are completely the opposite.

    Yeah absolutely! And it's amazing how small a change in angle can be noticed once you're comfortable with a position. Swap bikes with a mate and it feels like you're going to slide onto the back wheel. Was just noting that I looks really dipped from that angle and I thought it was an interesting position.

    To be fair, that's concorde levels of nose droop. Keen to hear the review of the forks!
