I'm sad to see the downtube cracked a few years ago, though I am supremely happy to see you involved over at Stinner - I might just have to order a frameset from you guys!

I see you raised the bottom bracket like a track bike, i get the intention, that its a crit bike and you want to avoid pedal strike but raising the center of gravity of the entire bike sounds like a horrible idea to achieve that. you don't corner a track bike (on a banked track) anything like you do to a crit bike on a street course.

And the extended headtube/drop stem is confusing.

YES!! that trench!! you understand!! and the wrist pain when youre forced to flex them downward to the hoods!! you understand me!!! Keep the hoods as they are!! usually id think get rid of the spacers below the stem, but considering the fact that you built this frame and that its custom negates anything i may think about aesthetics! Your bike is awesome!

it already it is perfect to me, plus the hoods aren't supposed to be horizontally flush with the bars. If you do that, it leaves a "trench" where your hands go. The way I have placed them gives a smooth transition between bar and hood.
