Have you ridden it yet? My eye-opener on my first ti ride was how good and secure the bike felt going over rough stuff; that it was actually more fun to seek out the bad pavement. I try to quell that urge in deference to my wheels, but that urge keeps sneaking back.

Ben, not yet. I live in Vermont and it's COOOOOOOOLD right now. I did get to demo one for about three weeks in the fall when I was making the decision to go for it. Great ride. I remember this one moment on this road that descends about .25 mile than goes into a left turn and on my "old" bike I would usually tap the brakes a bit to shave off speed approaching the turn but on the demo, an unfamiliar bike, I realized I was just swooping around the corner way faster than normal, no brakes, and it felt perfectly safe and comfortable. It never crossed my mind to slow down. That may have the decision moment.

Can't wait for that first ride!

Sweet, but I don't think those pedals are a good choice.

Ride On, I saw that. I think thinline is going to get surgically implanted spindles. Think about it. The Q-factor can be dialed in to perfect, you can go absolutely minimum height with no issues on ground clearance and it's hard to go lighter at any cost.

Oh, and it puts truth into the claimed bike weight.

CK, I was thinking that granny gear was appropriate for bike pjorn as it says, "I'm easy."

I'm 6'2" or so. If you look at the stem, you will see it angles down just a tad. The idea was that, since I will have this bike a long time, if I want the bars a little higher later on, I can flip the stem. A little long-term built in adjustability. And yup, that's the longest HT I've had but they measured me six ways til Sunday and that's what came out. Looking forward to that first ride. Snowing hard right now!
