Hello,

Nice bike! Do you feel those tires fit the bike well? Isn't the BB too low?

Dope build dude! Looking to get one of these soon and I'm stuck between sizes. Might I ask how tall you are and how you feel about this size's fit? Thx!

I'm 5'8" and I'm on the...Extra Medium I think he calls it. I usually shy away from bikes with that TT length but the geo of the frame fits like a glove.

love this bike. always been a huge bowie fan and figured this frame embodied a lot of what bowie was about. adaptability, wanderlust, diversity, beauty, adventure, among many others. plus the frame isn't black like it looks in pictures but actually a deep purple with sparkle flake. so bowie!

I'll be back to comment on this badboy soon enough, just too rad not to! in the meantime, would you mind comparing the Swift & Cambium saddles to one another (I'm familiar w/ the Cambium characteristics/limitations)

moose says:

swift is really nice, i wanted to compare it to the cambium so i swapped recently, plus with winter coming i'll probably just run this for a while until spring. swift has a smaller area on which to sit unlike the C17 which feels like it has multiple options. the swift definitely looks much nicer but has less adjustment on the rails and getting the angle right so that it both creates the desired hammock effect without the nose hitting the pressure point underneath your ladyparts can be difficult. Overall I'd probably go with the C17 as my end all be all, but i'm going to put lots of miles on the swift once spring comes in order to see how it ends up breaking in better.

answered exactly everything I was concerned about, especially the " . . . getting the angle right so that it both creates the desired hammock effect without the nose hitting the pressure point underneath your ladyparts . . . " thanks for always being a class act & taking the time to be this thorough

How do you like those Jones bars?

moose says:

comfort is king with these bars, which i'm into for commuting and longer rides. the control is definitely there when riding trails but i think i'm going to put drop bars on this bike eventually. jones bars will stay in the family though because they are so rad.

Cool man! He does a really good job of selling them in his videos, but I need to make sure I'm not drinking too much of the kool aid.
