Originally ordered in black....i waited and waited...called the bike shop...." oh there's a wait on black ".." your'e telling me..its already been 6wks..grr "..." Well they have an Orange one in a 15in if you want..."..apparently custom sprayed at the factory for a show....

Nice, didn't realise they had sliding drop outs! cool colour too. Wouldn't mind one of those in a bigger size.

The stem looks very long though, does it fit OK? I have a 60mm Pro stem FS soon.

Great looking bike! Isn't the stem a bit long for such a small frame though?

Conventionally ..yes,i suppose it is a little long at 135mm...

But thats how she likes it....makes for some slightly unique handling now and again..but it doesn't see much action....

I am going to try and tempt her with something more retro in the future..once i have cut my teeth on several of my own..

So I suspect i shall be looking for another matt black C16r before too long..
