This guy claims he always rocked a 130:

The other iconic feature of Cipolliniís bike was the stem. Regardless of the bike he rode or team he raced for, irrespective of geometry, Cipollini always raced on a 13cm stem set as low as it could go. In fact his handlebars were so low on some bikes he could hardly ride in drops, which is why you will occasionally see pictures of him sprinting on the hoods. If Cipollini couldnít do something in style he didnít do it at all.

Would love to hear about your initial impressions. Your drop reminds me of Hansen's or Hesjedal's bikes.

Looks awesome by the way.

Craig once sourced a mythical Deda 150 stem for me. Even used it. Wish I still had it, just because.

Could have for sure. But was trying to make a used bike work. Bike actually rode ok but toe overlap was an issue. But awhile, I sure felt pro.

Saddle height is 84.5....bars are 17cm lower.

Took it for a quick spin between thunderstorms today....not surprisingly it's incredibly stiff. and the Bora's exacerbate that. It's also been a long time since I've been on an all aluminum frame, no carbon stays, etc. Looking forward to a longer shakedown ride once the rain stops.

Hi there, found this thread as I was looking into clearing out my garage of a few bikes and was struggling to find any info about the FG Lite. How do I post a piccy from my iPhone?

You need to host the picture somewhere (like flickr or photobucket) and then link it.

Dusted this one off as it's been hanging on a hook for most of the summer. Still rides like a rocket....swapped out wheels and now it goes uphill as fast as I can drag my body along with it.
