He meant 20.75", obviously. You'd need to be at least 6'6" to need a 21.75" top tube.

OK I wasnt gunna start but here I'm just gunna say a few things then end it. Are you in highschool all honors classes have a ton of homework everyday, after school you go to work so you can have money to pay for you cell phone and all the other **** you have. Then you come home and are told that you are goin to be movin in about 2-3 weeks. Then you have to go up to your barn and clean out horse stall's then you have to finish closing it in and put the heating and lights in before winter comes. Then go and do your homework. Then hope that you can go and get out and be with your girlfreind work on my xterra to finish makin it a perfect offroad ride. Then hope to be able to go ride my bike and then put up with you guys just for fun. OK im done.

Should I mention the fact that all that BS you posted doesn't change the fact that you're still a 'tard?

It's not even my bill. It's in dispute, and they've been advised that it's outright harassment. And I offended the supervisor by spelling her surname wrong, as she pointed out she's English, not American.

By the way, I went to college for 9 years. Now I work a 50 hour week, run a side business, and still make a bit of time for the wife, kids, and riding. Maybe not always in that order though.

Mmmm. Payday. My days of a Coke and Snickers bar are over. I'm about to dig into a Ruby Red grapefruit.
