Yeh it's a strange angle. But after playing around with a lot of different angles I have found this works for me. Don't find myself pushing backwards or falling forward and don't get any aches or pains anywhere.
i have bike envy of both of them... more so the TCX though, absolutely love the colour!

Stick with the skinwalls. Black tyres are meh and just blend into the background. Everyone else has a black bike. Be a little different.
What the heck? I bet that must get some interest!
This is mine after some quite radical fit changes, and some other little tweaks:
Saddle went up 30mm, cleats went back a bit, bars were rotated down, hoods moved somewhat inwards, brake levers adjusted a bit. The next step is to change the bars to 40cm ones from the 42 that are on it. The changes have made a huge improvement to riding it over long distances and stopped the fatigue feeling in the upper part of my legs. It feels effortless now. A shame however that it has a small battle scar on the front fork, someone else riding along with me kicked up a small stone and it fired off sideways right onto the fork - chipped the paint. Otherwise - going strong, approaching 7000km.
Not that I noticed - but I did note that my quads were getting fatigued and ending up quite sore after a long ride. I was using them mostly and not other muscle groups. Now that has changed.
The guy who did the changes mentioned that was probably happening before I said anything. I just thought I'd lost some strength and just had to tough it out and it'd get better. The changes solved a couple of other niggling complaints, and identified a couple of things I have to do a little bit differently.
I couldn't believe how much difference the changes made. Indeed very lucky that there was enough adjustment with spacers in there.
