I'm not trolling at all - just a simple question I was hoping to get a non-reactionary adult response to. (which I got from pisgah, thank you) I also never said the bike was ugly, Unit. Go back and read my post again. Maybe you think it's ugly and were 'projecting'?
Honestly though, I think 5ft 4in is too small for a 29er. You have longer stays, you have toe overlap, and a short stem on a steep head angle which must feel incredibly twitchy (although kudos for going with the WB thru-axle which has slightly more offset than the QR) and a high bar position which must make it impossible to weight the front end on seated climbs or get adequate leverage during out of the saddle climbs - it's just something I wouldn't build, so naturally I'm curious as to why someone else would.
If the fact that I have opinions or want to encourage discussion loses me customers, I can live with that - there's plenty of people out there who want their frame designer to actually have ideas and stick to them, and why shouldn't they?
Anyway, I have Gastro so I really shouldn't be infecting my keyboard like this, and the discussion is obviously not about the bike but the wheels, so best not to do any thread hijacking.
On that note, do like the wheels. Very swanky. I may hit VentanaOz up for a pair in the near future (esp if I can get a gold to orange fade!)
