i think its the EBB thats making the box looking really low - because you have tightened the chain "down" .
I was just first thing assuming that the forks was too short

it's a joy to ride! :)
so far i've been using it for short, intense rides and it shined.

front triangle is stiff! thanks to beefy down tube
rear triangle is compliant
i climbed hills i didn't think possible in 36 X 18

too bad i'm not enough in shape yet (i'v had little health issues)

I don't think theres a lot wrong with the current bar and seatpost but I think a carbon seatpost would look cool with the forks and balance the overall look of the bike
