Goal achieved I think!

Great bike, agree about the tyres though. Think they are a bit "balloon" like for a skinny tubed petite ride.

Still awesome though!

I think the big tyres are a good choice for a rigid frame/fork that needs to be comfortable on the trail. Not sure I like the stripe though. But, I am jealous! Love the colour, love the frame. Superb 8)
