Test rider approves, but he wants to know "why does it pedal so easy" and "why are the tires making noise" and "why am I supposed to use smaller-number gears on steeper hills? Wouldn't you want the bigger numbers for bigger hills?".Very, VERY cool! When my grandson is riding the Commencal, he stands for anything moderately steep. The low stack might be an issue in that area. That chainline must be very challenging , but I do like short chainstays!
Awesome build, have you got your "test rider" on it yet?
