This is maybe the bike I've wanted the most that I've never even been close to buying just because it doesn't fit the riding I do at all. I really, REALLY, love them though!

I love mine. Maybe a little too much...

I bought the frame to build up as a rain/trainer/errand bike using parts bin bits after upgrading my "nice" bike (a 2003 Calfee, all carbon, racy geo, etc) with a new groupset. But this is so comfy, I ride it more than the bike it is supposed to supplement.

It has sort of an odd geometry. This is the biggest frame they make and is only 58 ctc with a long-ish tt and very short ht -hence the stack of spacers still yielding a "slammed" stem relative to the saddle. It puts you in a pretty aggressive long & low racy position (which I like), but has pretty relaxed angles, clearance for 32s, and LONG chainstays. Plush and stable. It rides sort of like a GT car as opposed to a twitchy track-day car.

Just for fun, here are some shots I took from a project a few weeks ago where I polished the channels on the outside for a cool contrast.



Love those! Nice thread!
