That saddle was transferred from my old bike and is the comfiest I've ever sat on
Not many people like how it looks but if I'm comfy I don't care

done quite a few miles on it now and all is good 8)
the ride is really nice and composed
the gears are smooth and precise
and i cant fault the wheels for build quality
not 100 percent on the tyres (michelin wild grip r's) but ill give them a few more rides before i make a decision on them
