It looks a little snooty.........nose up in the air... Maybe try it a bit more level before chucking? Hard to say. If it doesn't fit, you musn't sit.

Good question! It’s a 1” steerer tube on the fork. For now I’m using a shim with a 1 1/8” stem. In the long term I am going to be getting a 1” stem made by Eric at Winter Bicycles.

Nice bike...

So perfectly balanced. Beautiful and timeless.

How does the Campy compare to Shimano for you?
