Lately I've been pondering my most comfortable bicycles. The largest bicycle that I can fit has always been the most comfortable. Even with little to no private part clearance I've had good results. My most comfortable bike had a 25 inch seat tube. I am merely six foot tall even...I do wear regular shoes with platform pedals.
As much as I want to use clipless pedals I can't find a shoe that works with my wide feet. Even the Sidi Mega is not wide enough for me. So with my shoes and taller souls my height is roughly six foot one...Perhaps a 62-63CM frame is too large but it seems to work for me.
Is anyone else here comfortable on large bikes? I was comfortable on a 56CM frame but I had lots of seatpost sticking out and had to use a 140 sized stem.
It seems that on the largest possible frame I have exactly one fist of seatpost. This also means the head tube is typically longer putting me more upright.
As I type this I'm nervous about bidding on a large frame on ebay. It just might be too big...but I might as well give it ago...Tange Prestige Baby! aww yeah!
