I took it for a quick ride last night after building it. After riding a track bike for 4 months, it felt strange to have gears and to ride so upright. The bike feels twitchier than my specialized and I feel that I am more confident going around those slippery 180’s. There is some toe overlap, actually there appears to be a lot more than on my specialized, but I think it should be okay.
Some neat things: The rear brake boss is pretty trick, and it is not drilled to accept water bottle cages.
The frame is a Hampsten, built by Co-Motion.
