2. Kona Pahoehoe - the frame size and proportions were good, but it was the space it gave me around the saddle to try shifting my weight about, finding the right balance for each part of the ride and so on. I basically learned how to ride properly on that bike.
I then changed it up to a Ti hardtail that didn't feel right, before switching to a Cotic Soda, which I built up myself. I guess I'd learned enough to build it up right, so it feels just right.
My riding is probably more a function of these bikes than the bikes being right for my riding, but it all works for me.
