You kiddin'? I spent many an hour looking at your build. "Darn I really like the way Benson's rig looks but he was there first and I don't want to be a carbon copy". Had to get drops though! Only one in Singapore so far.

Really? Haha Thanks! I think if you want to modify it by all means do it! This bike is so fun as a singlespeed! But looks great the way it is

Thanks. I like the Unicanitor. It's a lot shorter than 'modern' saddles so make sure you adjust it right for the limited number of positions it's good for. Also the rails sit pretty deep in the saddle so your seatpost will have to be raised a little. Padded shorts are a must if you ride distances >30km.

how do you feel about the geometry of the frame? how does it ride?

I've only had the build for two days, but the short rides that I've had have been no problem at all. A very comfortable ride with the nimble handling of a track frame but more settled in a straight line. It rides a lot bigger than it looks, despite what looks like a very tall seatpost (it's meant to be that way).
