Sounds like you got more experience on different bikes than some journalists I've read hahaha. I will try to keep my "build" update in these pubski threads and would love to hear your opinion, especially mechanically. On the note of beginner questions, do you reccomend a helmet? I have few opportunities to try them on in person. I'm prepared to spend a bit of money for comfort, seems pointless to buy a helmet if I never want to wear it.
