I have seen on another thread on this segment of the forum that a few of us on here have got 16" 456 carbons and it's a bike that I'm very much considering buying!

Please post your pics :D

I've got an 18". Theres not much in the top tube lengths if you look at the geometry. I may have bought the 16" if I'd realised as I think it's only 9mm from memory. There's also issues with certain tapered forks and the 16" frame, search stw for that one.

Overall, nice bikes, I'd highly recommend one, especially for the money

Not mine, a mates. He's only had it a couple of weeks. Probably an 18"?

Another 18"... As mentioned above there's hardly any diff in the length between the 16 & 18s..

Fox 16's are fine with the tapered steerer, it's the RS that have issues with the tapered steerers, although there is a thicker crown race that you can get to fix the problem..

Here's mine anyway.
