I like the raw as well. Not worried about scratching nice new powdercoat. I am 6' 4". I am on the small size for this frame but I have ridiculously long arms and legs. My proportions seem to fit this size well. I rode a XL at Interbike and it seemed too small.
I'm 6'4" and am looking at an XXL. It is very nice to have such a sweet bike that will fit me.
I have a long torso and there are few bikes with a long enough top tube for me.
Anyway, that is a sweet build and mine would be very similar.
Coming from a Cdale Prophet, most front triangles seem noodly. I would very much appreciate some feedback on the front end stiffness when you get a chance to ride this beauty.
