Hi,
I was looking into an Origin 8 Interrogator, but, once again, i dont really know the quality or how good the bike is. I am about 5' 5, but still expect to grow a few inches. Do think this bike would be good for a noob? Any information is helpful.
Thanks everyone.

I got to handle one the other day. The tubeset is nicer than most out-of-the-box bikes BUT for the price right now there is much better options with a better geometry. Chainstays are 390-415mm. I imagine the 23"tt measurment is an effective measurement but that would still be like a 22.25ish actual measurement which is way long.

Yeah I have one and have no issues.. I'm 6' 4" though and it feel a bit snug but, if you're 5 5 it could be a beast. Short chainstays, manuals well, spins well. It's a basic frame nothing sexy but, I''m very pleased. Got my frame for the price of a Steelhead and I feel the geo is much much better with a lower standover.
