Thanks everybody! And we went with a Whisky #9 road plus? I get a nosebleed trying to remember the name. Gonna have a nice 700x32 wheelset and a slightly rougher 650x47 for dirt.

I envision a bumper sticker stating the same thoughts, Steve.

Bike arrived today in no time flat, got it assembled and did a few laps around the neighborhood. Need to put some real miles on it in the next few days, but I'll say it feels great and the fit couldn't be more dead on.

Going to be commuting on it tomorrow and putting in a long dirt loop over the weekend. Also ordered a gold seat collar to complete the look, turns out they're kind of hens teeth in this size but hopefully it'll fit the bill. For now here's some pictures of it with its 650b wheelset.

Thanks so much! I figured the gold would be kind of a swing, I really dig it but I wasn't sure til I actually saw the bike honestly. Steve was also very patient as I changed my mind on the paint color 170 times, I'm very happy with the final result though.

Yup, gold chain and some matching gold headset spacers would work well on this one.
