Thanks Roy - Great pic.

I think I like the proportions even better on the XL

Roy are you not on the cusp of an XL?

I like my frame's as small as possible, but maybe you're right.....the size L was readily available though and I couldn't resist :D .... the 620mm effective TopTube is just long enough for me with a 100mm stem

Thank you.

I didn't mean that to sound as questioning as it came out!

Another quick question .... what headset do you need to run?

No problem mate :D

Headset is HOPE, it's a tapered one but with an adapter ring for the crown race you can run a normal 11/8 fork too
