I'm only 6'2 gents, and that's only on a good day when I stand up straight...

my height is all in the leg and the pics above are from when I first put it together, unridden, so hadn't set it up for my particular shape.. :wink:

Judys are still here, and I like to swap between the two..

Even with the Shimano 'Groupset' the Rourke is stunning. 8)


al.


When will someone tell the mega corporate money men at Shimano a Groupset needs a headset!! When will the people at Cane Creek stop laughing at Shimano?

Having spent hours dribbling over the Rourke at Mayhem (that wasn't rain getting on it Steve :lol: ), it will take something very special for this not to get my vote this month.
Stunning bike, and even nicer in the flesh

Some lovely bikes already! The Rourke is very nice, and for the first time I've really liked an Orange - I actually like both of them!

Not entering myself - it's easier to buy a bike that's already won BOTM than put all the effort into one myself. ;-) :-D
