Are you going to cut that steerer tube down? It's offending me.

that is a massive drop, do you get pains in your hands or do you keep shuffling back on your seat by any chance?

no pain in hands and no unintentional shuffling, just intentional shuffling. That's why I'm worried about cutting the steerer, just incase I want to change it!

well in my opinion i would move your stem back up and your saddle backwards. if you have a plumb bob it would be interesting to see where your knee sits over the pedal axle when the cranks are horizontal.

if i was a guessing man i would guess you adjusted your saddle after you moved your bars? to make it a bit more comfortable?

i could be totally wrong though Smile just offering some advice Smile
