Get them out of the way now. And no, I wouldn't rather have spent the day staining the fence or cutting the grass.
I know that nobody is interested in the 26" bike now the new 650boy is in town, so I'll keep this brief (for me).
I had a 2006 version that I really enjoyed but had to sell as it was just too small. Getting back on this 2013 model I was struck not so much by the difference as by how similar it felt. I had an angle adjusting headset and offset bushings on the 2006 version, so the angles were probably pretty similar. But it's more than that. I guess all Fives basically feel like Fives.
It was funny listening to that chatter between the front and back wheels about which way to go again, but that's one of the defining characteristics of the Five and I like it. Others don't and that's fine too. It's all just bikes innit.
