Ch-Ch-Ch Changes: Planning For A New Bike

On top is my old bike's geometry...

And here is a draft of the bike I have in the works. I was looking for something that might be suitable for long distance and climbing... but with vigor and some race personality.

ST ctr-ctr: 485mm
TT: 531mm
HT Angle: 72.5 Degrees
ST Angle: 74.0 Degrees
BB Drop: 69mm
CS Length: 410mm
HT Length: 134mm
SO: 776mm
Front Center: 57.0
Fork Rake: 45mm

This is very close to what I was imagining. The only surprises are in the longer chain stays and the bar height. Something to consider.

Anyone want to weigh in on the matter?
