    Three different bikes, three different sizes. At most, one fits.

    The sizes in the pics seem to vary a lot. If it doesn't fit it doesn't matter how nice it is the bike will suck to ride any distance.
    Yep, THAT Ira

    deal?
    Need a new tape measure.

    Around here, bikes in that price range do not last long enough to discuss them.
