great build and write up.
I was wondering the same thing about the frame sizing...according to the ICAN geometry chart, the seat tube length (center of BB to top of seattube/clamp) is quite short for the corresponding frame size. For your 54cm frame, that dimension is listed as 48cm, maybe thats what Heybrady is referring to? I am about your height too, (6'2"+) and usually am on 58cm+ frame but ICAN listed seat tube C-T for their 58cm frame as 52cm. that leaves a whole lot of seat post for my 80.5cm saddle height; on top of that, the provided seatpost is only 300mm so I might need to see if they can provide a longer one depending.
Whats your bb-to-saddle height and how much seatpost do you have exposed?
Very interested in this frame but that is what's holding me back.
Great point, I'll measure this when I get a chance (likely Friday evening or Saturday) but unfortunately it's in the shop right now because I stuck my derailleur into the spokes yesterday evening. I do have a lot of seatpost exposed (I know I run my seatpost at the 255mm mark), but I don't mind because I like sitting on my low top tube on the fast descents and I like having the bars very low.
