    Please tell Santa (aka Grant P.) to please bring me my Sam H. soon? I want my new toy too!

    And, speaking of Sam H….What in the Sam H were they thinking to not produce a 54CM 700C bike? I don’t see the need for an average sized person to have to deal with 650B sized wheels. Otherwise Sam H seems like it would be a killer bike.
    Too bad…

    “What in the Sam H were they thinking to not produce a 54CM 700C bike?”

    54cm is a fairly common cut-off point for dropping down to smaller wheels, particularly on bikes designed to have sufficient clearance for >32mm tires and fenders. For example, Surly only offers 700C down to 56cm on their LHT; below that they drop all the way down to 559mm (26″). It’s about having plenty of tire/fender clearance and avoiding extreme toe overlap on a small-ish bike without having to resort to a compromised frame geometry.

    I think Santa is trying to teach you patience. :-)

    Merry Christmas!

    Yeah, Santa always wins! My new mantra is : ” patience, patience, patience, oom” !
    Or, Perhaps the age old saying: ” Is it here yet, is it here yet, is it here yet”?
