so how does it compare to modern 29er geometry?

...here's a blurry photo behind my Singular Swift- Its on a slight slope so looks higher than the singular- but very similar angles...

As suspected the high, steep stem means that with drop bars this should give almost exactly the same position (in the drops) as my singular set-up.

On-one Midge on order...

Good point. Evening light, camera phone and no time have conspired to give the above. Once I start the build proper I'll get some sunny footage of the GT in its developing glory.

Need a bit of space so the frame and forks etc is now up for grabs for someone to make something scrummy. £85 posted.
