    Very hot! But, isnt saddle a bit low (or rather, bar a bit high?).

    The bike is for his Wife. Most women don't like to position themselves as low as men. Give her time to build a racing position if that is the way she chooses to go.

    Holy crap you actually had your spokes powder coated red?

    So bizzare to do that to a set of Aksiums but props for following through

We did some tweaks but are going to get a pro fit done next month. Hopefully they will be able to dial it in better. I just hope he doesn't recommend a smaller frame!
    If she´s happy thats way to do it! As stated; hot bike!

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.
