Im sick..I just bought an NOS way big 857..and then this near new medium 856 came up on ebay...(I am 6'7'')

But wait..my girlfriend is 5'6''.....sold!!

Both of these bikes will be soon be getting risse genesisis front and rear. The 856 will be put back to stock with 800 xrays, diacompe pc7s and lx cantis..the vbrakes just dont look right IMO..

Nice bikes but the medium still looks a bit big for someone at 5'6"

Always remember Proflex's being big for their size, 16" more like an 18" etc, even the early ones.

If you call them on the phone they will offer you a discount if you buy multiple shocks. They quoted me $650 for 4 shocks for both bikes..(normally $800 for 4 if bought separately)

On another note my girlfriend has promissed to try and get taller. I am also making her watch this video repeatedly:

Nice looking bikes. Not too many ProFlex's on here, great bikes though.

Can't see anything wrong with the V's though, I've always thought they suited the frame design well.
