    Welcome to the '585 club' .... Each time I ride mine it brings a smile to my face.... :D

    I find that I now go hunting out climbs and hills as it seems to climb like a moutain goat !

    Enjoy .

    I have a 585 Optimum and it's one of the nicest riding bikes I have ever owned

    You'll love it because they're faultless, I've had plenty of frames that have been and gone yet the 585 Ultra remains, I just upgrade it every now and again and it feels like new.
