    I like the description in the Team Raleigh ad
    It is made for someone tall because the steering tube is long.

    That's the first one I honed in one. You really have to see it to believe it. The head tube looks like a seat tube. It's huge.

    mmm tall bikes!

    I'm pretty sure I'm faster on my Hi-Ten 66cm Panasonic than I am on my 62cm Reynolds 520 Jamis with all the carbon bits and brifters.

    Size makes all the difference!

    And really small bikes. Seems like the sweet spot is 52 CM - 58 CM.
