nicely appointed, but short chain stays make rear tire removal and installation difficult and fender mounting problematic

Overall Quality

Really nice bike, love the disc brakes, 105 shifters, the compact ergonomic bars, the external bottom bracket and the the thru-axles. One problem though, if you want to mount fenders, clearance is very tight for mounting a rear fender. This is probably due to the short chain stays (412mm). You may have to make serious modifications to fenders to get them to fit. Forget about mounting fenders if you put on 32c tires. Disappointing when this bike is being marketed as a do-anything bike. Also, I discovered that getting the rear tire off is difficult if the tire is fully inflated, and getting it back on is more difficult. It helps to let out some air, but that's annoying. This would be a perfect bike if it had just a little bit longer chainstays, maybe at least 420mm.
