Has anyone actually ridden an Extralite?

Does it bob? It looks flexy, is it?

Thanks,

Rich

I have a Scandium HT model and it is amazingly nimble I love it.
As for the FS version I have no idea except what I heard:

"I remember reading a review from a UK mag on an Extralite, and although they were amazed at the low weight and racy feel of the bike they said it was about as solid as a wet noodle."

Not sure on drinkin 'un ridin. I wouldn't personally do it especially on the street here, cyclists aren't very welcome in this part of the country.

Don't drink and drive! (You might hit a bump and spill your drink.)
