    Great, thanks a lot - I'll stick to a 52 then!

    Thanks a lot! It's an ongoing debate in my group of cyclist friends. I have always been on 52 cm bikes and I keep on hearing "your bike is too small for you" whilst others object it's the right size for me. I feel comfortable on my bike, but I guess that it's because I'm used to small bikes and I don't know any different.

    As you can see, my seat post is quite high but it works okay. So... should I stick to 52? I should probably learn more about bike geometry and size variations.

    Fantastic.

    1 - I currently have a Campagnolo groupset but I don't know much about it, happy to be enlightened on the topic...
    2 - Difficult, I'd say rim brakes - esp. if I want to change tires every now and again.
    3 - I'm on 700c wheels, yes!

    I've sent you a message, thanks a lot :)

    P.S.: I'm not Panda1, or whoever that is.

    Aluminium would be my first choice, but I could be convinced otherwise

    DoubtfulAce Ah yes, I forgot. Second hand and around £700-800 for a full bike!

    Hi there, I've been looking for my dream bike for months now, and I always find myself in the same (very frustrating) situation. My knowledge of bikes and the bike market being pretty limited, I struggle to make the right decision and end up with bikes that don't fit the bill.

    I would love to meet someone who can help me with my search, someone knowledgeable and eager to spend a bit of time to advise me on a satisfactory purchase. For London-based charitable souls, I can make up for the time spent in beers, coffees, bike rides and French lessons - vraiment.

    I'm looking for a 54cm road bike (or smaller, I'm a 5ft9 female) with the possibility to fit gravel tires. I'd like to be able to go touring with it - I'm planning to go on a 1000+kms bike tour in September. I would also use it to go on my usual weekend bike rides on roads and Regents Park laps.

    I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me find it, feel free to send me a message!

    It might be a bit late but I'm looking for a second hand Wahoo Element Bolt, or any other good bike computer that I could use for the Audax Festive 500. Anyone selling? Thanks!
