I saw that the other day searching CL's for Ti mountain bikes. For some reason the wheels look smaller then 700's. Looks kind of cobbled together. I'll save my pennies for something else. They just don't do it for me.

It's a huge frame, 24 3/4" which makes the wheels look small.

Is it just an optical illusion or does that design put your body weight much father back?

What's with the saddle? Riding it like that has got to cause damage to one's anatomy.
