I'm contemplating getting an all-purpose 'cross/road bike to do a litle training this summer. Anyway, I was wondering what those of you with much more knowledge on the subject think of the Planet X Kaffenback for shorter road rides and off-road riding. Thanks!

|The singlespeed version of the Kaffenback, the Il Pompino, has been discussed at mtbr's singlespeed forum, doing a search there will turn up some impressions. singletrackworld.com also has discussions of the Pompino (heh) in their forum.
Some issues about running it as a cross bike:
- head angle is steeper than most at 73 degrees
- tire clearance with the included fork is tight
If you do end up being interested in the frame and fit their size Large (54cm/effective 57cm), contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I have a new one I may sell/trade.
