Just walk into your LBS, whack your money on the counter, and take the first bike you see. If you can't be bothered to do a bit of research yourself, don't ask us. Slacker.

He didn't say he's old. But if he is, he's got to bump the old school threads. It should be some kind of rule, don't you think?

One last thing would be do you think its long enough where its not to long but not to short for my height 5'7. there isnt a lot of bike shops around me so i cant really check. ok and one other thing i live in missouri ive been looking just havent found any thing yet where would be a good place to buy dk from that would ship or be located in mo thanks
