Sooo Who is everyone
I like their new frames, the welds are so smooth I almost thought it was carbon. If it feels too big then you may benefit from a shorter stem, and it'll also sharpen up the steering.

Some people prefer smaller frames but you have a normal amount of seat post sticking out and if it fits then I would say its fine

I had a Krakatoa for 10 years or so, did my paper round on it, took it to uni etc, black with random speckled/splashed effect paint job

Like this but with 300lx (I think) rapid fire

18" is a bit large if you're 5'6", I'm about 5'8" and rode a 17" fury. You'd be right to try something a bit smaller next time round, but enjoy this one.
Keep it foolish...

I rode a 19" for a few years and I'm about 5'8". It did feel a bit large when I first got it, but soon got used to it, so now small bikes feel all weird and upright and like they should have a wicker basket on the front... or something.

Well, this seems like the place to introduce onesself! Just came across this forum by accident as I needed some inspiration! I've been living and riding in Dover a few years now, really enjoying exploring round there.
I grew up in Ashford, BMXing til 2005ish, then getting into bigger bikes. Very familiar with the Warren, Kings Wood etc Can't believe how little is known about Kent, riding-wise, outside!

Welcome to sketchy, I'm a fellow ashfordian. Be good to see you out on the trails soon. Sound like you're a life time rider and having fun finding your way around Dover way. Some good rides get posted up for Canterbury, Maidstone on the forum if your after some new riding spots.

Hello!

I'm new, so I thought I'd drop by and introduce myself too.  I'm based in Chartham, have too many bikes and am keen to explore some new routes.

I'm also reasonably new to the area...have lived in the locality since 2009 but am originally from flat, clay-addled Colchester.
