Due various non-bike related issues it took me almost 2 years to get mine fit right.. now I'm thinking that while fit might not 100% correct for me it is still a fantastic bike.
In contrast to usual praise (they are correct btw) here are some heretical thoughts:
- the headtube length is comically short - I like long and low bikes but I have stack of spacers, 12deg rise 60mm stem and 40mm rise on the handlebar to get the bar just below seat.
- it needs fancy shock and some tinkering (volume reducers and damping). Not for climbing but for descending - swoopy dh trails are problem with too large shock volume or shot damping.
- seat tube angle makes it feel like I could fall backwards on seated steep climbs.
I don't a recent photo handy at the moment, I can post something tomorrow.
