I went for a couple hour ride on it this morning. The first thing I noticed was that the frame felt large for a 54cm, but part of that could just be me being used to a size M compact frame. Once I got used to it though I really enjoyed it, tore around some muddy fields and trails with rollig hills. Feels fairly fast, and despite the steel fork not that heavy. I'd recommend the frame. It looks nice in the matte grey too. Some of the welds are a little sloppy looking, but there aren't any gaps in them and the frame is straight so its all good.
