If your back is that flat with the max spacers and your arms that high how does that handle remotely well?
And, how agressivve you get depends on your fit, really. It looks like you're about one bike size too small, unless you have a weird T-Rex physique.
Not sure what to tell you brother. I'm normal size 5'10", 31" inseam - no T-Rex staring back at me in the mirror. It is the medium frame. Had a professional fit, from a reputable and certified fitter / specialized dealer. All the spacers under the aerobar pads were removed, leaving two large headset spacers to play with. Won't be changing seat height or position - that is spot on. Handling seems fine - took it on a steep descent with some nice turns at maybe 35mph - not a problem (although I was probably in the drops so I could brake if needed). You do have me wondering if I would be just as comfortable if I removed a spacer.
