    Good for you.
    I think your saddle bag may be upside-down though (?).

    I don't know if this is exactly the same bag, but this is the correct orientation.

    It ain't rocket surgery. Buy everything on sale, pedal when you have too, coast when you can, and get home in one piece. Keep going forward - there is no reverse.

    Nice bike! I remember seeing these at the bike shop when they were new and was impressed by the finish of the carbon frame.

    May I make a setup suggestion?

    It looks like you've added rise to your stem to move the bars up to a comfortable height. Based on this, I would recommend you take a look at compact style handlebars. They bring the brake levers/shifters closer to you and the drops are also closer to you. This makes riding drop bars significantly more comfortable.

    They are not pricey. The FSA Omega Compact Bar runs around $30, plus the cost of new bar tape.

    If you order from a place like Performance, you can always return if you don't like them.

    Gimme..I fixed the bag ;)
    holy cromoly...the stem was given to me to try and i did not like it, I just recently changed to a Reynolds Ouzo Race Stem, 100 mm, 6 deg and i like it much better now .

    also changed my saddle to a toupe expert and i like it so far .
