Aptly named 'Crysis'.

Fist doodling on it didn't feel as sketchy as I thought it would. Bars feel weirdly big tho.

You made a great choice.

You missed the early 2000's when everyone cut their bars down to less than 2 foot wide and Dirty Harry levers were a must.

When I started riding again at 46 I started off with a Crysis! Great choice!

How's the geometry feel for you?
These new bikes seem so much twitchier. I ended up with a Sunday Model C because it seemed more stable.
I'm coming from an 87 Ross Piranha and a 96 GT Vertigo.

It feels ok bordering on fine to be honest.

It's the 21 inch version, I'm 6'1". Cut down the bars to 28" and replaced the stock pedals with some Cult DAK ones. To my own surprise it feels somewhat good. Looking at the numbers I suspected something terrifying to cycle. The one brake is next to useless, there is that.

Having said that. I'm sure there are many things I would like better. But sadly not in the position to try out all frame sizes, geometries, fork offsets, wheels sizes, etc. 46 now, by the time I'm 56 I should be able to give you a better answer =)

Even the shittiest of brakes can be tuned to make for better braking than ehat comes off the factory floor. Mess with them a bit, sand the pads, clean your rims and if those things dont work. Soda or hot glue sticks work great!
