Nice bike! I like the low pro looks, but what do you like about riding it?

lopro geo with risers or flats gives you a nice upright riding stance that I find very suited to city riding .. also I find that lopro geo feels really awesome when you sprint - it's like someone pushing on your back instead of fighting the ground .. it just feels fast. With drop bars it can get a little aggressive but that's fun at times too ;)

also a hi ass BB clearance means no pedal strike when cornering riding fixed .. all in all this bike is just the best ;)
