I am astounded with the ride. Not sure if the smoothness is due to the tyres (25's) or the wheels of the frameset (or a combination of the lot) but smooth doesn't even come close to how it rides, yet when I want to GO- it responds without hesitation.
Its beyond my expectations!
Here it is in action on my second ride on it (100km of hills out to Kinglake and back)- http://youtu.be/gCbAkeRxguo
I come into frame about 3.22 into this video. Love the change of music when I appear into frame! LOLhttp://youtu.be/tP3Du9bj-Gw
