If not the best, certainly right up there amongst the leaders. Not sure if it is insanity or genius to do this with a Glide. Either way it seemed to work out and I wish I knew more about his build...

In my opinion, this is a great bike but definitely not for everybody. You have to like the Italian styling and quirkiness. Great choice for me anyway.
