    Yeah, I'm 6'6" with a pretty/very short torso, I have very long legs.


    Thanks, I like it allot. I was trying to go with a silver and black thing, I want the silver piston cap things for the M4's but really can't justify the money just for the color though.

    Your saddle-to-bar drop just sent my lower back into spasms...I am going to get a massage now.

    The bike does look great!

    Black Ano Flux...Beautiful!
    Make sure that seatpost has 4" insertted. It should reach to the TT/ST junction.

    I have long limbs too. Seat to bars height ratios seem less important to me as well...but I've been stedally working them closer to the same level on the more agressive setups.

    Enjoy!
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    I wasn't at first, but on the last ride I put a small dent in the nds seatstay, then I was cruzing around here and saw it on some of the bikes, so I did it to mine, seems like a good idea, I guess, I'm sure I'll get sick of it and take it off. Probably until the "new" wears off.

    Sweet bike but..holy crap that's a high saddle!

    Does that affect your ability to avoid endos on steep stuff?
