No Idea how it rides since there is about a meter of snow on the ground... yay Canada! There aren't too many pics of this frame online that do it justice, so I thought I'd get a few more out there. Its not the lightest frame by any means but I'm okay with that considering its a huge step up from what I was riding before.

If anyone has any experience with this frame feel free to leave comments. I've read that its very stiff but good at dampening road rattle... seems to be a common description of most frames in general anyways :lol:

    Very pretty - particularly like the shape of the handlebars, don't think I've seen that one on sale in the UK.
  • Nice !!! 8)
  • Thanks! Needless to say I'm excited to ride it.

    I haven't seen the handlebars for sale here in canada either. I got them on ebay, and since they're no longer in production they can be acquired for a pretty decent price now. Not the $400 US that they originally retailed for :shock:
