    Nice bike, I’ve always had a soft spot for helix frames.

    Thanks, I must say that I’m very happy with bike. It is light, it handles very well (short wheelbase?) and to me the Helix tube shape looks great.

    Recently there has been an item in “Cycling Weekly” where they compared a Helix with a special R230 (with straight seat stays). Here a link: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151531940018512&set=a.110926448511.102205.35832143511&type=1&theater
