Subtract 25 cm from that? You don't need to stand over your frame 10 inches. You also shouldn't be sizing a bike from the stand over height exclusively. Who ever told you that, tell them they should go kill themselves.

Go to a bike shop and asked to be sized. They won't charge you anything to do it.

eh it was a yahoo answer so what do you expect haha. i actually went to a shop yesterday and they said they charge $25 for sizing but refund it if you buy from there razz

there's two other shops in town though so i'll try those out

is that to be fit or just to sized? I could see them charging to be fit, not sized.

it is small. someone that is like 5 foot should ride it. since you're in la (i'm assuming b/c of your cl ad) check lafixed. i'd try to look for a 53-54cm. you could try getting longer parts to extend it but honestly leaders suck.

quick question, do frames usually vary in size? just seems likely. went to a bike shop today and a 50cm Fuji roadbike felt very comfortable

track frames are traditionally square. road bikes are long and short. did you only try the 50cm? maybe you have a really short torso..

Thanks, I guess its for protection while locking your bike up. It looks good though.

I never lock my bike by the top tube
its just so when you lean it against something the top tube doesnt get all fucked, and to help your nuts not get destroyed if you hit it

I got some hand grips and swapped out the seats from one of my other bikes and now it rides like a dream. I will buy a better saddle, but I just need to do some research.




Still need a top tube pad, you cant see it but I already got a scratch.

So i bent my rear wheel bad, need a new rear wheel.. i was thinking of getting a deep v for like around $100.. you guys know any good places that will sell just the rear with hub and spokes for around that price?

Edit: Also my front has a small hop.. anyway to get it out? Took it to the bike shop and they told me they can't fix it, it's a tiny hop that feels like i'm going over those lines on the sidewalk.. Not something too serious but annoying.
