I thought that myself. If you didn't know it had 24" wheels it would look like a decent sized frame with a 65 tooth outer ring :lol:

Nice job; love those levers! What are your plans with it? Isn't it a little small?

Yep, too small for me. I bought it to temporarily scratch my Cannondale itch and wanted to make it shine again! My wife is going to give it a go and if she doesn't get on with it then it could end up going back out the door :(
