    iro rob roy

    got to check one of these out at the shop yesterday, looks really nice, the colour blue is beautiful and love those curved chainstays. they should have a 58 in for me next week and i'll have it built up a week after that and give a full report.

    well i just got mine, it not blue its red! and a very nice red at that. The decals seam to be painted on and are flaking off very easy. some of the powdercoating is a little wonky. I need to finnish up my wheels and i be all set.

    I was looking at the angles of the frame,
    75 seat tube
    72 head tube
    I've never seen any other frame like this.
    I can only think that the steep ST is for better spin while the slack HT is for better offroad control/comfort.
    Is there a reason no one else does this?
    Or am I just not looking hard enough.

    Hrm, I haven't heard any mention that this frame is something other than blue... Red should be nice, though.
