Been busy decorating as family staying over Christmas. Now that's done grabbed a quick ride out before the carnage begins. It's pretty much 98% complete. Just a few small details that need sorting. (Different seat post, purple clamp bolt, new decals for stem, maybe black chainrings bottom bolt on seat tube thread is knackered, so will fit a 'dummy' bolt, fit a more appropriate chain stay protector).

Really pleased with how it's turned out. Rides very nice. Lightening fast and a pretty good fit size-wise.

Seeing as we had snow yesterday, thought it apt to get out for a ride.

The 1.9 tyres were pretty grippy considering. Though frozen brakes were certainly 'interesting'.

Seat pin and stem look very high.

Maybe you have incorrect sizing?

It's a Klein. They are meant to be small and agile.
