    only had her out on the bike path so far, but she feels quick and comfy. Coming from Turner Flux, so waiting to see how comfortable she is on the long haul. Does make me want to get out and ride even in the current weather

    And a very good endurance racing beast they are too.
    Would possibly still be using mine for that purpose this season if it was not for damaging it during a crash at a local 24hr last year.

    Nice light build that looks like it is durable too. Usually don't get them both at once. GOOD LOOKING too.
    are those bottle caps on your bar ends? if so, how?

    Adds a bit of bling and I like to change the caps regularly depending on my tipple of choice

    Buzzard,

    Can you tell me how tall you are, and what your inseam is? Considering the Mamasita for a hardtail, and not sure if I would be better off on a Med or Large. THX.

    I'm exactly 6ft and have a 33inch inseam. I fall between the med/large, but availability kind of made my decision for me. Run a layback post and a 100mm stem and have plenty of room. Looking to decrease the layback by 10mm. In hindsight, I'm very happy I went with the medium. I think the large would have felt like a bus in comparison.
