So I had the first run out yesterday of the Yo at the MacRetro National. First impressions were that the front was a bit light on the climbs, I was thinking an inline post and 0deg rise stem may help. As the day went on though I seemed to get more in tune with what was happening and the initial lightness disappeared. Comfort wise there was not a problem at all so getting lower at the front shouldn't be too much of an issue. Overall I'm really pleased with the fit and most definitely with the ride. I wasn't expecting too much when going down but the bike handled superbly and again just seemed to get better and better. Its true what they say and there is magic in them tubes
My only handling criticism was the bars, they are just too narrow, I need to find something retro and wide(r).
My only problem was one of gearing, a slippy freehub in my lower two gears and a slightly too big granny left me running out of legs a bit too quick.Some new hoops are on the cards anyway.
Overall I'm really really chuffed, on a normal ride I'd always pick out a modern but I can see me riding this a whole lot more than my other retro's and maybe even my other bikes.
