I used to have one of the original red ones. I had to sell it on as the geometry just did not suit me. Well it did, but I should have bought a size smaller as the top tube was so long. I've always bought frames in 53cm to take into account my short legs/long torso build, so I don't have to run overly long stems. But this one I should have bought in a 51 or 52.
