Thats pretty much spot on and why my steeds never look right ... I am a freak :cry:

I ride a 52cm Trek and Alan with loads of seat post and a stack of spacers on the headset but anything larger and I struggle with my reach but always feel I should be on something larger :roll:

Hang some heavy weights on your arms!

I was thinking along the long seat/short top tube lines but it didn't seem to make sense. Along with the short stem it does seem a bit out of proportion but if that's how you are comfortable then so be it. Any photos?
