different specs but feels great
I'm a short inseam person (about 30" I think), and with the L2 as it was, I couldn't get confidence with a secure foot hold on uneven ground or camber.
I put the KoubaLink 2 links on the back for an 1 1/8" height decrease -- and then pushed the fork tubes up the tripleclamp 5/8". I now get the full ball of both feet on the ground for secure footing around
I suppose this setup sounds like it'd be a slow turner -- perhaps it is and I wouldn't know, not having anything to compare it with. However, it feels great to me. (I could try the local shop's demo bike to see if there is a difference).
My setup is great on the open road and on gravel roads. The traffic here is minimal -- so can't usefully comment there.
