174 to tall for 50cm frame? That doesn't sound right... I'm 180 and juz got 53 frame and I think it may be to small.

I have relativeIy short arms, so it's a bit too long. I prefer to have it short and the front a bit lower...

I like them! Suntour stopped the production of the front model instantly because the self-energizing mechanism doesn't work on the front wheel except you use a fork with the canti bosses pointing to the back. They are quite hard to modulate, but on the rear its not that important for me.

How's the retro shift I've only seen 1 or 2 other bikes on here with it, also any picture of the quadruple butted tubing and lug work?

Maybe a little unusual but shifting is super crisp especially with the burd rd and you can mount any downtube shifter to it wich is supercool.
If your rear derailleur is jammed you can still switch to friction. But no shifting from the drops...
