In the past I have never owned a “high end” bike, so this bike was a first for me. I do appreciate the great geometry of some of my older bikes. You were able to incorporate allot of those traits into this bike. This bike was designed for allot of blue groove riding, and I really like how fast this bike feels. The fit is great, as I no longer develop neck pains when I ride. Thanks Carl, for building me a bike that will last the rest of my life.
