just found the thread, any excuse to show off the bikes I love.


I am currently designing a frame based off the geometry of this bike which I love despite the marginal quality of the frame. I have really been surprised at the advantages of the small diameter, large cross-section, high pressure tires!

there is a geometry chart available on the manufacturers site if you are interested:
