I can't ride it for another month due to injuries, but here's what this frame can look like. As soon as the doctor gives the goahead to start using clipless pedals, I'll add eggbeaters, and also will ride it a bit before deciding where to cut the stem. It's a sweet frame
I have no idea if I can actually tell the difference with any of my seatposts, but this one looks really sweet and is american made, which I really like. It seems light but solid.
Also, I was pleased to discover that the bag it comes in is pretty much perfect for a carrying an avalanche probe, which is kind of handy and makes stuffing it in my backpack a little easier. Obviously that has nothing to do with cycling, but thought I'd share it if anyone was wondering what to do with that little bag.
I haven't built this up yet, so this 'review'" is obviously preliminary, but this frame looks better in person than it does on the website photos. It just has the look of a quality bike - everything is finished nicely, and I have to say the lack of graphics looks pretty awesome. It just feels like a nice bike. The folks at realcyclist, particularly Zach, have been very helpful in putting together the rest of the parts I needed for this. I can't wait to ride this.
I'm 6ft, 185lbs - the large is a perfect fit for cycling. Event is great - I'd just recommend being very careful if you try to iron it to restore water repellency - I melted some event pants that way. Jacket is a nice design, though, and the pocket is great because there's no worry about anything bouncing out of it since it zips. If you care about being seen by cars, the color is pretty muted, but if you're ok with the color the jacket is totally great.
