Well thanks guys. Your enthusiasm has rubbed off. Interesting to compare the FRO to the 575. Laid back head & seat angles. High bottom bracket. Long wheelbase. Cranks with big hollow axles (as bullseye I had on the FRO before I gave up on the cr*p bearings).

The FRO needs the correct stickers fitting & a real clean. It rides like a dream altough I really liked the wider handlebars on the 575.
