I have the io (cheaper frame) and it is a sweet ride. I think it has a retro feel and looks nice into the bargain. Nice build BTW, looking forward to your report after your first proper ride.

That's tasty lookin' there's no denying it.

What size is the frame though? I only ask cos I'm not sure about the looks of the comedy sloping top tube on modern frames to accommodated the gazillion inch travel forks they fit these days.

Seriously tempted by a Genesis frame, I have to say. 8)
