I like the compact style of frame geometry , and 3500 miles and counting... I don't think its the wrong size. Most road seatposts are layback! this one is just a different style.
Exactly! Most bikes use a layback seatpost. You need them to take the weight off your arms/hands/ With an inline post you're all hunched up, it feels awkward!
Also, 8000 miles - if you're fairly into road cycling, thats the sort of mileage you tend to do on an annual basis. About 150miles per week, its not a great deal if you think about it. I think I recall Radoggair (I think) posting his annual mileage last year - 13000!
Here you go, flame away! Its steel to start with, and the head tube is dead long. I'm going to get slaughtered!
