    Looks a bit small, thought you were a 6'er?

    Well, thier sizes are 15, 17 and 19. That's a 17 but with a 24" / 600 mm TT and 120mm HT. I did go through thier size calculator AND a man on the phone with all the usual measurement (arms/torso/inside leg etc). To check I didn't need custom sizing but no. 6' 1" is the max for this frame and I'm 5'11 and 3/4.

    It is bloody stunning to look at. Very clean lines and beautifully curved seat stays.

    Indeed, but I did:

    Absolutely awsome ride. It has the nature of a jack russell, very nippy, seems to like being thrown around quick switchbacks etc, with the back wheel being slid round speedway style on the sharp ones. Its a beautiful ride for an HT, not harsh, very comfy and zingy.

    Still unsure about the shorter bars. It is noticable, but in some ways (in forest singletrack at least) they seem to suit the nature of the bike. Might try the long ones off the other bike before I buy some more.

    I've got to say, those Sids are awesome. Only the bike angles tell me I'm running 100mm, and its sucked up a fair bit today, really impressed.
