So Im thinking about getting back into riding and got my eyes on the 2020 Sunday streetsweeper. What do you guys think about this bike? Any cons?

Its a kinda twitchy bike to learn on but if you're just getting into it and the bike feels big enough for you, you wont even notice.

The description says the bike is "built around Jake Seeley’s all-new chromoly aftermarket signature frame, it uses a 75.25° head tube angle, a very short chainstay and a higher bottom bracket to match perfectly with Jake’s technical riding style."

Basically, having that aggressively steep headtube angle means the front end is more perpendicular to the ground than many other frames, meaning steering is a bit more responsive, or twitchy as we call it. Also, the chainstay, i.e., the measure from the middle of the bottom bracket to the middle of the rear dropout, is pretty short at 12.70"-13” long, meaning the bike lifts up easier compared to a longer chainstay. The bottom bracket sits higher as well, which affects the feeling of a bike greatly to some. All this, with short 165mm cranks, gives you a "twitchy" bike setup.

However, as Bullet said, since this is your first bike, you'll be fine since you don't have past bikes to compare it to.

It's a very good bike though, full chromoly parts, everything is sealed, super solid.
