At speed, the Blackline is as stable as a parked bus, the result of its long (66.4 in.) wheelbase, 33.5-degree fork angle (30 deg. in the steering head, with the fork kicked out another 3.5 deg.) and 4.8 in. of trail. With that geometry, the steering is a tad floppy at walking speeds, and a hint of that trait remains when turning city corners, but it goes away above 20 or 25 mph. Otherwise, the FXS manages urban trawling with expert-level composure, aided by a light clutch pull and smooth shifting.
