Cheers fellas, properly in love with it. always have had frames that were slightly too big for me - either cos they were on sale and better value but just manageable, so having one that fits me is night and day.

looking forward to the Brooks breaking in though, currently killing me Laughing out loud

Looks great roophees. How much did it set you back, if you don't mind me asking?

Would love to get something that fitted properly like that.

Cost me £1.7k

Bit more than I was budgeting (wanted £1.5k tops) but decided to go for lighter seatpost, better saddle etc.

Part of the appeal was definitely the bike fit and getting the geometry all correct - eg never knew i needed wider handlebars.

What's going on with the handlebar stem on that bicycle, Fläsket?

Laughing out loud my most favourite word in the world - doesn't get the airtime that it deserves.

What's the difference between the Mojito and Mojito X?

Year of manufacture I think. X is just a newer model.

nice build but why would you go with a setback if the saddle is completely moved forward?

anyone got experience in swapping MTB tyres for commuting gatorskins? Tried it last night, and think the inner tube is too big to squeeze into the gatorskins - quite a lot of overlapping tube, but managed to squeeze onto the rim, but deflated within 10 mins of me doing so…
