    Got a larger bike!

    Here's my latest project. Should be on the road soon. It's an '87 Cannondale SR400 Team Comp. It's a 60mm. Needs everything but should be a fun project. It's a little on the large side but I think I'll be able to adapt to it better. I think you can adjust to a larger frame easier than a smaller one.

    This is just in it's mock up stage.

    Ironic, you say you got a larger frame, but then say it a 60mm. That'd be pretty small

    You're going from one extreme to the other. If you are 5'8", a 60cm bike is going to be to big.

    It doesn't actually look like a 60cm to me... More like a 56 or something. But it could just be the photo.

    Cannondales are a little deceiving in size, due to the larger diameter tubes. That bike is either a 58 or 60.

    I think it's actually a 58 I may have measured wrong. It sure feels better I know that.
