I spent a couple hours this morning and another hour this evening tinkering with the settings, trying to adjust it for me. It should have been easy. Stock stem with three spacers, seat height adjusted to hip level, as far forward as possible, tilted slightly down. Ummm, not so much. I swear this frame is smaller even though we ordered the same size. The height is perfect, but the reach...oh, the reach. I feel like I'm going to fly forward over the handlebars even with the seat as far back as possible. I can't decide if I'm crazy or if they really did change the frame geometry. And forget about my aerobars, I knock my knees on them trying to get on the bike. If I move them forward, I really am going to fall over the handlebars. This DID NOT HAPPEN with my old bike. I have exactly ten days before my race to either get used to this bike or find another solution.
