I have been riding road exclusively since I have arrived in Japan. This is dramatically different from back home where my road riding was less than 30% of my riding. Trail were nearby and I would prefer a day in the woods over a day on the road.

I will be moving this summer out of chinatown and possibly to Zushi. There are some trails that will be available to me then and I decided it was time to get a new toy.

Already scheduled a trip to break it in! April 20th I will be out playing down in Izu.

As for the stem... it is a crime that I am not running a 130mm stem! It is a forgone conclusion that any bike with anything other than a 130 is the wrong size... so i will just say, I liked the color!

I bought the frame from a small boutique shop in the US.
