Took for a nice 25 mile ride today, lots of rolling hills, averaged 18.2 mph.

Awesome rig!

The titanium cages in my lower spine just cried a little bit when they saw your seat to bar drop. Sigh.

Holy Seat Post Bat Man! I like the bike. But, thanks for reminding me why I keep fighting to stay on traditional horizontal top tubed frames.
