So how does KL differ from the non-oversized version of EL? The dimentions appear to be the same. In my experience, non-oversized EL was just wonderful for a small rider - I weigh less than 130 pounds. But it's "crashability" was somewhat limited, which is why I suspect my frame was repaired with an SL downtube. Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia (USA)
