Sounds like a pretty standard setup. I'm sure people here can correct me, but I thought the default was 2.5 - 5 cm seat-to-bars drop. Mine's quite a lot more severe - See photos in "VXRS confusion" - but seems to work for me.

It depends lots on the type of riding you'll be doing (TT bikes are much more severe to get the whole horizontal back thing going, but are less comfy to ride, and much more twitchy).

the frame / stem proportions compared to your body make a HUGE difference - too long a top tube and/or stem means the bars will need to be higher for you to reach them, etc. etc.

Anyone with a bit more bike-fitting experience care to comment?
