I've heard great things about these frames but can't work out if the geometry will be good for me.
I currently ride a kinesis crosslight pro3 which is a 54
At times it think the 55.1 ETT might be a bit stretched but i've rode it for afew seasons and get on with it (100mm stem). However I rode a mates ridley x night and loved the 53.5 top tube and I felt more in the bike (and would tally with a moda opus someone lent me for a race last year which also had a 53.5 top tube)
The van dessel g & t has a 54.5 ETT a 74 degree seat angle and 72 head anglehttp://www.vandesselsports.com/?page_id=31
I love the fact it is disc ready and is compatible with a 130 or 135 spaced wheel.
Like i say I rode my mates 52 x night (56 c-t) and loved the fit. i know this has a much higher BB and the van dessel has a 70mm drop.
how do you think the van dessel will feel in comparison to my current kinesis? I heard a steeper degree head angle will effectively make the TT 1cm larger than the kinesis
