The head angle on the first bike looks very slack.

Is that bike supposed to be run with such a long fork?
If not you may want to lower it, it's pretty easy.

Really love those, but think the Gold stem is overkill, All the other Gold is great, but think a Black stem would look more balanced with the Black seatpost?
