Handling is remarkably normal with very good straight line stability due to a large trail figure - though the two motor pace bikes I have ridden, a Bastide and a Carlton are slow to change line. My Bastide I rode several times on the road and it was far nicer apart from huge toeclip overlap (even with a 24in front wheel) than anybody could have imagined.
