I’m doing an extended test of a 63 cm SimpleOne right now, which is quite a nice fit, even though it’s measured C-T, accounting for the sloping TT it might be in the same stack & reach ballpark. Time to source some Vlaandrens?..
Gotta do 120mm on this one.. Fit is perfect with that.

SimpleOne does sound like fun, as long as I have a shuttle for the hills.

Thanks - I'm loving the bike - feel like it was built for me.. As for the ride, it wasn't snowing today and I felt like I had to go ride outside - but that meant finding roads that had gotten a bit of sun and didn't have slush or ice on them - after mixed results in the neighborhoods, I jumped over to the deserted COCC campus that's next door to me and found a bunch of short n' steep little roads that are perfect for clearing out the cobwebs after a few days of riding the trainer for hours on end.. plus there are a bunch of deer always hanging out and some nice views.. Must be quite a few controlled burns going on right now. Good time of year for it I guess.

Good to see you getting out and enjoying this one. Bonus that the fit is spot on for you. Nice sunset too.

Looking good! Perhaps you've found what you've been searching for? Couldn't imagine a more perfect bike or build.

Great views over there!

I think I remember you had a RS before. How is this one different?

This is my third. It's the newest and largest....and the best fit, and that's the big differentiator. May be other geo differences. Dunno. Just love this one.

Very sharp. Interesting that the chainstays seem to have a subtle curve as they near the dropouts. If true, I had not noticed this detail on RS's bikes before.

There is a subtle curve that I believe is there on his newer frames that use the vertical dropouts that attach differently than the older horizontal dropouts. I'm sure it's been covered somewhere here or on VS at some point, just haven't seen it.

I hope I don't butcher this but from what I recall the angles on some outlier frames require that slight bend in the chainstay. Ive seen it on some of RS instagram photos.

I believe that is right.

I've been riding and enjoying the hell out of this for nigh on 500mi now, right on through winter here (though not today or for another week or more with the snow that arrived). It's a peach. I'm glad I took a chance on it - and I don't see ever letting this one go. Really. Seriously. I mean it.
