Hi, I've been looking at this beauty for quite a while and find almost any part of the setup to be awesome. Not much about this British frame on here, what are your thoughts?

Well thought out design and looks beautiful. Plenty of tire clearance. The 77mm bottom bracket drop is on the low side and makes me wonder about pedal strike issues with a 650b set up. Otherwise, if the rest of the numbers and geometry would fit you well this looks like a great bike!

Yes, my only concern is the BB-drop - my current bike have a 60mm bb-drop. I guess it will take some getting used to: not pedalling through curves or deep tyre tracks. Never tried a frame with such a low bottom bracket before.
