The meteor helmet is new this season, I must see about getting it closer to my back - looks unaero to me, though could just have been head position at the time. I think it needs to rotate back a bit.
Anyhow - position has not been tweaked for a while and in terms of standard distance saw me get a 21'12 in a 10 last season (levens) and a 56'26 25 (M2510). Last season was first at tt'ing though have road raced for a few years). I usually finish between 6th and 10th in most Open north eastern events.
FTP on my road bike is 290.

Fill yer boots with constructive positional advice - especially Jeff who is a bit brisk himself.
Front on shots are good for this sort of stuff.
Your position isn't bad but it needs a bit of work, especially your helmet/head position. Helmet needs to be flatter against your back and your head/torso could go down a bit, subject to you being able to still put out the power. Ditto your elbows could come in, although not too much.
Wouter Sybrandy has it sorted:
I find the Bell Meteor needs a lot of tweaking to sit flat on your back, e.g. two weeks ago I had it right
But last Saturday I was in too much of a hurry and it was pointing up too much at the back and moving around a lot. Not that it would have made 2+min difference - it's the principle of the matter!
15min of adjusting the straps and a bit of tape has it nice and snug now.
