I like the track stand very much but the bike is also tremendeously great! I think a pursuit or compact drop bar would increase the niceness :)
Well done.

Thanks! I'm constantly changing between drops and risers - feels like it fulfills its destiny better as a fun bombproof bike..

I think you're on point! And a black/black Chris King headset to go with it, too! To keep it all-american..

agreed w/ everything written here, but I'd think the money for a WoundUp would be much better spent getting the Phil Wood BB & an AARN chain ring.

w/ the WoundUp, you lose some of the orange colorway, the cool Masi script when they see ya coming, & you'd be introducing polished metal onto a bike that has none anywhere else.

Karl says:

Thanks man -glad you like it! Min came with a 27.2mm shim but without it it's a 29.8mm seatpost. Had to buy a new one - they are very rare in that size!

Also, how tall are you?

Karl says:

I'm 185cm - don't know what that is in inches. This one in 56cm is definitely the smallest I can fit. Should probably be a 57cm instead
