Ben, this is incredible, I’m so, so stoked to have been the person to plant the seed, and to see you pull it off. Awesome. Great read. Keep at it fellow vertical meter eater!

@bananowy: Totally. You summed it up the the last sentence. Basically, I just preferred the feel of the XL over anything bigger. I have long legs, but I’m sure, given time, people will get over the sight of my seatpost.

Sure go for it man. Sure you’ll get something out of it. Although I have always made a point of never asking for anything and only do these things for myself, I was just fortunate people took notice. Have a good’n

Being clipped in doesn’t make you an efficient peddler dude. Technique over everything.

@Glory831Guy: It’s actually a comfortable seated position for me dude, got big gangly limbs, and I make a conserved effort for never pedal up out the saddle, it’s a very inefficient way to climb.

Cheers man! yeah, I'm 194cm so on paper could have done the XXL but I've ridden bigger bikes before and the XL 490mm reach feels just perfect, big fan :)
