Thanks all. I'm very happy with the results!

Yes, it's asking to get dirty!

It's funny Mike. I was in State College back in July this year and went over to Eddies to see if he'd consider selling the bike. He said there was no way he was going to sell it... wonder what made him change his mind.

I'd like to think the Groves have been designed to ride well, rather than ape the ass-in-the-air roadie position a lot of older early 90's bikes have. Everybody likes the high saddle low bar look but in reality it's bikes like the Groves that are the best to ride, have more control etc.

It looks so right to me because of this.
