My all-time, favorite bike! My only regret is not having more gearing but I guess it's a zen thing when I'm riding this anyways-want more speed, pedal faster, need less, go slower. Don was probably sorry he consented to building this frame for me halfway through its construction, but I think we're still friends! I added the aero downtube late in the process but did want the carbon rear stays right at the start, in the event I raced this thing at all (which I didn't) and also the carbon fork to help soak up the bumps. I ditched the suspension post last year and like the ride even more since I mainly use it on the road, but in either environment this bike is fantastic, really a great ride! What can I say, Don knows what he's doing with design and btw, go see his NAHBS and BUY something from him-he's not getting rich putting these shows on and I think it's easy to forget he's the guy that made it all happen!
