I wish I was on a bike that small when I got ran off the road last week, it would have made my trip to the ground a lot shorter!!!!

Sweet! I almost got one of those for my GF (1.2 WSD), ended up building her a bike since I have tons of parts lying around! I'm sure she's going to love the new bike!
