    I like it, but by the looks of the seat placement on the seatpost, it looks like you need a shorter stem.

    the stem's a 17 year old 150mm mtb that i had chrome plated along with the seatpost which complements the chrome chainstays. the set-up's very front-aggressive and somehow it fits perfectly...

    Looks great. But I agree with Pablo. It looks like you've got your saddle jammed forward to compensate for the long stem. Have you ever checked your knee over pedal position? I'm guessing that you would have more power and comfort with a shorter stem and seat moved back some.

    I love the Kelme paint

    and also agree. look at the older pix where saddle stem were more 'normal'

    i originally had deep drop/long reach "merckx" bars with a 130, -11 rise stem. the current setup has much shorter bars, 150 +rise stem. also had 180 then 177.5 cranks, 175's now. if the seat's low/back, lower back pain. forward low/power pos-knee pain. this is a compromise that seems to work, but i'm always open to great suggestions...thanks!
