    Cliff,
    Thanks for relating your buying/building experience. Sounds like you have a winner on your hands at a bargain price. I really like the solid yellow paint sans decals.

    I only made it 30 miles of a regular loop. At 18 degrees Fahrenheit, even two pairs of booties could not keep my toes from freezing. Talk about agony as my digits rewarmed upon returning home!

    McTufferton,

    6'0" tall, 34" inseam. Most of my bikes are 55 cm or 56 cm with setback seatposts and 120 or 130 mm stems. I do prefer being stretched out and aero on a bike.
