Rave review in the mag, i was handed the actural bike and told to keep it for a weeks or so.
i really wanted to like it, i was 85% sold without riding it.
i have and have had serveral old and new era steel frames so i'm sold on the concept.
I don't want to say anything negative about the frame, maybe it was the forks (that were with out a doubt the worst "proper" forks i have ever ridden- a Shockingly dead lump of pig iron.) but thats the forks.
I would wouldn't want to buy a buzzard now with out riding a production model with some forks on that work. Hence my advice above.
If i could have got a deal on a solaris i would have had one.
But the Kinesis FF29 with slant forks was stuck a good deal and i was able to get via my LBS with a bit of tax relief.
And i'm happy.
