6ft2..........ish lol, finally got a proper post and tbh most of its buried in the frame. rides really nice, got some new rubbers coming next week to soften the rear end up a bit.

test ride today went well, 22ish miles and the only faults (other than me) were the shit pedals, and realising that a 3ft kicker in the woods that used to be 2ft high sends mr longun very high and very scared!!!! that and 12-28 and 28 38 48 biopace rings require leg muscles...........;)
