He he it is a bloody long steerer, but gets me a good position for eliminating backaches and such. If it's good enough for Thorn...

Ride is really good, feels quite quick and nimble, more so than it probably looks at first glance. Best 'hybrid' type bike I've ridden - and that includes the Boardman range. Quick and smooth on the road with sharp steering yet surprisingly good offroad, dry conditions only though with these tyres.

Gearing setup so that I can get up vertical climbs (21" or so) up to over 100" caters for most things. Ideal commuter - although I've yet to use it for that.

it was the best riding bike I ever had - shame it was ultimately too small for me :(

Now with guards and less bits. 60" singlespeed seems to suit it down to the ground!
