It was too small =(. I finally took it on a long ride recently and it wasnt very comfortable. And im on a tight budget and I had to get something now for work so no time to save up and build. So the Windsor was the best deal for the money. Something that i can build as i go along and save up on the side for a "dream bike"!

yeah that's the thing. cause everyone's ass is different and I don't want to make the jump without trying it first. Do you still have your brake set? I still want to buy it, just waiting to buy/trade other things with you to make the trip worthwhile aha.

I had a full bike picture uploaded a couple weeks ago but I removed them because they weren't appealing at all due to being shot in my house. Still trying to find a nice, low light location to do a photo shoot. Will have all pictures by the end of the week!
