No agenda from me, nor an opinion but remembered this place when sharing elsewhere. Get a beer or 10.
Best wishes to all
Combe Martin. Where are you?
56cm IT IS IN NORTH DEVON
£200 price firm for now. Traveling North on business M5, M42, A42, M1, A1, A19 on Tues morning if it helps? Basic pedals supplied only
Got a Genesis Flyer. 56cm. All standard. Very, very tidy. It's in Devon though and don't have bike box. £200 min
I'm 6'2 and have 35.25 inside leg to floor. Look on Dolan website at Preffisio size chart. The 61 is perfect for me. I'm lost on a 56 and IMHO a 58 looks like I bought the wrong size. It's all down to the geometry of frame though, I know a man who rides 56 at the same height as me but his legs are shorter and arms longer so he has a very long stem slammed. Go and sit on bike is only answer but I recon unless his 56 has HUGE amount of seatpost showing it'll be too big. Bear in mind crank length too, big bikes tend to be 175mm. If he doesn't buy it share the bargain!
Just a heads up that may help people with cheaper bikes. My old Koga Miyata has a modern R2000 Claris 2x8 on it, I won it cheap and new. Always been clunky at the back. Just put a 10 speed Tiagra chain on, now it's perfect. Seems the new 8 speed cage in rear is narrower and the 8s chain was (just, very just) rubbing cage. Wonder if Shimano have specced the chain width down to 9s or something?
Spell check says Shimano should be Hiroshima :)
