That actually sounds good. When you are running a stem that short (unless you have a funky body shape) it usually means the frame is too big. And that's a killer price for a complete bike.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

I'm going to take some pics of the "new" bike later today and start a new topic. Different bike = different topic. It arrived yesterday so I did the switch out and rebuild. Internal routing on a Quintana Roo is a PITA. My saddle really doesn't match fit well w/ the new color scheme, but I've only got so much money to spend before my wife kills me!

Biggest difference is the fit-- on the test ride up and down my street it was a whole different world. Of course, now I really want a smaller road frame, but that's not going to happen anytime soon (famous last words).
Words are like bullets, I let them pass through me.

We have a solution to put the Garmin on the aerobars as well. Check out our site and let me know if you are interested.

Stick with the road bike as it is. I tried moving to a smaller road frame and it just felt twitchy with the shorter wheelbase. I couldn't feel comfortable on it.

Technically your post is against the rules.

And to be honest I'd feel a lot better about this if your website at least had an address on it.

Feel free to add valuable info to your post and why you think it's a good option for this build specifically, or I'll have to consider it a rather random plug of your website and probably delete it.
