Lovin it - Poss the best riding hardtail . One thing I never get with the IF, why no front facing seat-tube slot ??? I was forever cleaning the inside of the ST on my old one, especially after commuting through a salty road winter :?:

I'd have thought on this occasion it's more to do with where the tubes are welded isn't it?

Nice bike.
