A little too aggressive of a geometry for my vertically challenged body, but it looks like it would be a load of fun riding it.

Agree, John. My neck and shoulders would express their displeasure with me for a week if I was to try to ride that! Assuming my lower back would even let me reach the bars. :)

I sometimes get some flack for my "old man" Roubaix with its taller headtube, but 90% of the time, I'm the freshest one in the pack as the miles tick past 70 or so.

Before I got the Colnago, I had my Defy in the shop for a few days and borrowed a friends Madone that I used for a 45 mile ride. the bike was the same size as mine (50 cm) and the seat height was close enough that it didn't need adjustment but it was a race geometry. After the ride, I had pains in my back and shoulders that kept me off the bike for a few days. Being short with a short torso kind of limits one to what type of bike they can ride.

Surely needs a set of look power pedals to complete the package.
