    Merry Christmas Alan and Michael.
    Thanks for your great site and may 2010 be a great year for you and the rest of your readers. I have had a good present already, the big bushfire on the 23rd missed my house by about 300 metres. Lots of others in my town were not so lucky so it will be a bleak christmas for them. Thankfully there was no loss of life this time.

    A few questions about the Loring: 1. What size is it? 2. What size (roughly) are you? 3. What build did you get? Any differences from the review bike a few months back? I guess I will look forward to more posts about its ride and capability as you have it for a while. It looks like a great city bike.

    1. It’s a Large

    2. My pubic bone height is 88.5cm and I run a saddle hight of 78cm (measured from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle, inline with the seat tube). Set-up this way, the bars are approximately 1cm above the saddle.

    3. It’s the iMotion 9 build. Love the new SRAM IGH. The gear ratios are spot-on.

    I’ll be reporting back over the months with more details, but feel free to ask further questions anytime.
