I made this bike wirk for me by putting a shadow 54mm reach topload stem. I cut the seatpost and added 320mm primo seatpost. I took the sweet UGP neon grafiti seat (equivalent to today's "fat" seats, 10ish oz) of my old bike and put the eclat seat on my old bike. I stuck some eastern nineties on it. The bike feels big but maneuverable, easy to manual and comfortable. Part of me wishes I had held out for the 2012 model, due to the obvious upgrade with the onyx cranks, the even shorter chainstays, the 8.5 " rise bars (the '11 has 8.25) and the adjustable seat post, but the berserker rims don't look as strong as the bondi rims. Plus going from a 74.25 head tube to a 75.5 would be such a huge jump (the '11 has a 75). Overall, I don't think you can go wrong with envy, whether it's an 09, 10, 11 or 12 model. If you want a new custom complete and dont have 1600 bucks, this is a good way to go. (I got mine at dan'scomp and got pretty hooked up with their rewards program (thats what I used to get a seatpost, seatclamp & stem) though it chapped my balls to see it on sale for 120 bucks less, like 5 weeks later). I give the 2011 4 and half and I give the 2012 4 and 3 quarters stars. I;m rounding up to 5, lol.
