That was how I had to ride the Wasp, not because of the size, but because I wasn't heavy enough to get traction. I used to get wheelspin and fall off, as I lived on a hill and it needed a good push to get it going. The trainer at Herne Hill Velodrome said that if a sprinter on a track bike had that issue the solution was to move his weight back over the driven wheel so I moved my weight forward as the Wasp was front wheel drive.

All the best

Hi Roy
Not really adjustable , and 100 mm cushion is going to be awkward , Specially if it rains lol

I’d suggest 6’ (182cm) would be good height to ride it as-is. Chris H rode it too - what do you think Chris?

Hi Neil

It would need to be approximately 100 mm shorter X seam length to fit me. Is there any way to adjust it, and for it still to be rideable?

All the best.
Roy
