Just got my bike yesterday. Threw the Hold Fast Straps on and took it for a spin immediately. My first thought - it performed better than expected. Its really fast and the gear ratio 48 x 16 keeps you on the move and provides an anerobic workout at times (incline). The hold fast straps really help as they give you tension and work different muscles in your legs than when your pedaling in compression. I took it for night ride last night and a short ride this morning. My legs are still feeling it.
I'm between 5'-11 and 6'-0" and purchased a 59cm. I was a little dubious as to whether I bought he correct size but after I hoped on it was a damn near perfect fit. I've adjusted the angle of the pursuit handle bars and the height of the seat but still need to create a plum line so that I can adjust the horizontal position of my seat.
One thing I can say is that it is a little slow off the line but I'm no competitor so this is really a non issue for me. After one rotation on the crank, you're flying. I don't have another wheelset to compare to but I did feel every single bump and crack in the road but I understand this is typical with fixed gear/single speed. I think a wheelset upgrade could improve the ride a bit which I've seen most people do to their contenders. As with all fixed gear bikes be careful on tight turns. I had one instance where my right pedal it the pavement. I barely noticed it but the little bump in my cadence signaled to me that I need to pay better attention while turning.
This bike is a beast on inclines. I can't say what percentage the inclines were but a few strong standing rotations at the crank will get you going.
Guess thats it for right now. I will return to this thread and add-on as I get in more rides.
Cheers - Steve
