LOL, my Chartres hybrid is a 15 inch frame. But yeah, those are pretty heavy duty dampers.It's a bit hefty with those forks, they only made that size frame (14") as you're not really supposed to sit on the saddle and pedal.
I'll guess I'll find out when I go to have a look. I could ride that bike of yours like a normal bike without having to put a long seatpost in.
It's fun riding in snow isn't it ?It looks like a 'Jump' bike to me, similar to my Saracen 'Blitz' which was great fun bombing down forestry tracks until I came off and bust a collarbone, that then got a loonnng seatpost fitted (600mm plus the fitting from an old post) that I had machined out of seamless alloy tubing so I could ride it as a normal bike.
