The acid test is the extremely unbalanced front load. It passed with flying colors. This has to be about as comfortable as my trek 720 and I am digging the b15 big time!.

The handle bars are perfectly suited for the offset load on the front. Lookin’ good mate! Yes, I started SS a year and a half ago at full retirement age but still working , but less hours . We are learning to live on less income by slowly decreasing my hours.
