    Yep, it had an 80mm stem and now has a 90 and fits like a dream...fits a LOT like my road bike. Did my first CX race today and got it filthy. It was a HARD course...it was either uphill or goopy muddy. Hardest race ever. Wishing I didn't have so much toe overlap, either. I won't even attempt to ride some hills where I know my front wheel will be wobbling back and forth enough for it to be an issue. Hence this.


    And now my bike is properly broken-in.

    Boy, I don't know. When I went through my fitting and interview with Seven they said that -- in theory -- they could mostly eliminate toe overlap, but that it would make for geometry that I would likely not be all that happy with. Given that I'm also using this bike for gravel and road riding I really wanted something that wasn't wonky during those times. In the grand scheme of things only a very small portion of my riding is CX. And I may be able to move my cleats forward on new shoes. My LGs aren't particularly stiff, so I had the cleats back a bit further than need-be. I am in the process of getting some nicer Lake mtn shoes with carbon soles that should be a LOT stiffer and have less of my duck feet ahead of the pedal spindle.
