I have two bikes, a 19" MTB and a 56cm hybrid. On the MTB the measurement from the ground is 1 5/8" greater to the top of the pedal, center of the crank and the top of the seat than the hybrid. The problem is when I stop and step off the MTB it feels like I'm stepping in a hole compared to hybrid. I'm starting to think that maybe my MTB is too big. Is this normal? I'm about 5' 10". Thank You.
Trek 1000, two mtbs and working on a fixie for commuting.
Well, it has never bothered me, but now that you mention it, I do recall feeling like I am stepping into a hole coming off my mtb compared to my roadie. I dismount by swinging my leg and un-clipping and sliding off. It is smooth on my roadie, but it is quite jar on my mtb.
So, I guess it is normal, but I personally believe that if something bother you repeatedly, change it.
