are the boys doin' the fosbury flop over the tt?

may not be ideal, but it doesn't look horrible. if the rails on the new saddle are similar a 0 setback will put the clamp more in the center. looks like you have enough steerer for a more aesthetically pleasing stem. btw, 31.8 bars open up more choices (can use short dh/fr stems), although the new profile aris stems for 26.0 come pretty short. current bars look like they have a decent amount of reach

OK.....I finally got a chance to talk to my buddy who is managing one of the bigger LBS in Madison (he's going to press in a headset for me so I can rough out a build to see if i like it)

He was looking at it (yes it IS a 5000, not a madone) AND.....it IS a 52....I was measuring wrong, he informed me that a Trek is center of bb to top. THAT is NOT the top of the seat-tube, it is the TOP of the TOP tube....OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.....yeah this why it fits me... d'oh....


top of the seat tube (cluster/lug)
