    Here's mine. Sorry for the shitty quality photo. Built up with Ultegra 6800, Stan's 340, Force crank and some sweet King Cages. Will most likely be making the switch to 1x11 soon.

    They are both 57s. I'm 6 foot and it seems to fit great. I believe they make a 51, 54, 57, and 60.

    Clement X'plor 40s

    About to pull the trigger on these tires for my wifes new Surly Straggler. How do they roll? Her commute is mostly road with a few detours down smooth single tracks.

    Surprisingly they roll faster than the Vittoria XG TNTs i was running. IMO they are a very fast rolling tire for the size. Mine are set up tubeless on Iron Cross wheels at 50ish psi

    fire02red - is yours a 57 (L) or 60 (XL)? looks bigger than the white one below.

    EDIT - dont worry i see you said your one was a 57!!!

    So on their website the geo chart says the large fits riders 5'6"-6' but the stand over height is 839mm (33in). How is the sizing working for you guys? I'm 5'9" with an inseam of 31in and think Id crush my stuff with that stand over height..

    I'm 5'5" with about a 28.5" inseam & was wavering between a small/medium based on the recommendation on the geometry chart. Then I got to thinking about the seat tube length plus crank arm length & with those added together I'm looking at 27.5"+. I really don't think I'm tall enough for a 54cm seat tube so I'll be going with a small. Hoping to have the cash to order the frame later this week.

    FWIW, I asked Tom about the standover & he told me it's measured with a 1.75" tire in the frame.

    All very nice bikes. Just curious, were you all able to test ride the frame or was it a shot in the dark?
