Wow, I am really torn by this bike. It's my target size, but I just got a layoff and don't want to spend the $2k it might get up to. OTOH, I could put my Masi, Breezer (sorry, OT content!) and Woodrup up for sale, since this bike would hugely out-Woodrup the Woodrup, and my Trek could be the workhorse.
Marc and Charles, for your two bikes, what are the BB drop or the BB height above ground? Many sport-tour geometries like this have drops of 6 to 7 cm (such as my Woodrup!), and eRitchie tends to build drops around 8 cm. But it's even more interesting if he's used 8 cm here.
