is the geometry not a little too small to make longer/commute type journeys comfortable?
how tall are you? i looked into doing this, but got the feeling the frame would be too small for the task...?

Hi Twain

I have seen Chris riding the Trailstar and he looks very comfortable on it, I asked him how it rode and he was very happy with it, I would estimate he is around 5' 8" - 5' 9" so fits him like a glove, hope this helps :wink: :D

Mark :D

I am an unusual size. Kermit nearly guessed my height. I am actually 5' 7''. But I am very disproportanate. My little legs are only 27 inch with a long body.

I find the ride very comfy having done 30 miles on road and 25 miles at Thetford (all on the slicks!).

Hope that helps.

Chris

Hi Kermit.

You nearly got it correct. Good estimate. And hopefully it was some help to Twain.

Was it you I was talking too at the library traffic lights?

Strange, this bike thing.

Even though I never knew you by name and saw you twice in ten years I remembered you because of the Cannondale..... :)

He was. A very special guy.

Did you know him through cycling?
