Aside from the frame, the hubs are one of my favorite little details

Of all the bikes I have owned, I never had a red one until now. I'm surprised it took this long.

Wow, that's eerily similar to my sizing - the terraplane stays look great and everything is pulled together nicely. You're going to love it!

Outstanding bike! The build is fantastic as is the paint. More or less my size of fitted with a 9cm stem.

Tried out a new saddle today. Needed to use a Thomson post because of the carbon rails. Felt fine, but not feeling it in terms of the overall appearance. Most likely changing back.

True. Very very true!

The good news is I'm good with either one fit wise. I have three of one and two of the other either on bikes or in my parts bin for future use (i'm fickle that way). Just wanted to see how it look mounted on this bike.
