I can't really afford it right now but I might be tempted by this. Can I ask how tall you are and how did the frame measure up?

I'm 5'10" with quite long legs and it was a good fit - wouldn't want to go smaller. Used it with Pace rigid 440mm forks and a 120 stem at first, but actually it felt better when I put on a 110.

Cheers for the info. I'm 5'8" but the tt is the same as my Pace so I think it might be perfect. I just need to decide if I can get away without buying any xmas pressies this year....

If it's any help, my previous bike was an 18" RC200 - I just transferred most of the parts to the Cove. Same bars / saddle / forks / crank length. Position was virtually identical.
