learn what frame size fits you, seat tube length from 50 to 56 Cm a likely range.. top tube matters too.
frame designers choose this for your upper body portion, reach from seat to bars.
once you have a grasp on what framesize is right for you you can ask more detailed questions..
wheels, components, and all that..
Thats what i am trying to figure out... I dunno what size i ride...
The bike dealers around here suck, There just as bad as car dealer, they don't want to help.
I found a 2009 Scott Speedster S50, It is 56 cm?? he is asking $700 See if i can get it down to $500
How do i check what size i ride?
what you think? no ideal what the size is...

Specialized Elize Sport (M) road bike - $550
This is a great price for a great MEDIUM SIZE entry level road bike. Brand new Gator Skin Tires with Mavic XP 21 Rims, brand new Bontrager SSR seat, All Shimano Ultegra gear, inelli handle bars, just tuned up and ready to go. This bike shows like new with very little wear. The only reason I am selling it is to make room for my new one. I have about $1200.00 invested in this piece " can you say fair price". Thanks for looking and call to make an offer.
How tall are you? What is your inseam size? That will help us get you in the ballpark on sizing.
5 foot 7? 32? between 160 and 180 pounds?
