Seeking advice on sizing, and information on this company.
I hope it's safe to post about questions about this here; a vintage track bicycle. The "other board" will probably want me to put multi colored grips and riser bars on this. It's vintage, and I have hopes of getting my bike kicked on it at the local velodrome (we actually have one!). My reasoning for posting here, is I already mentioned why not on the other board, and I don't think it belongs on the Track forum due to the frames age.
For some reason the fact that it's a swedish made bike intrigues me. Has anyone ever heard of this company before?
But the problem...about 5'11 with a cycling inseam of 32. The CtC on this one is 58cm and the sellers claims it has a standover of 33 1/2!? This bike is completely out of my size isn't it?
Can I make it work or asking for trouble?
Follow up, how do you vintage peeps deal with finding a beautiful bike possibly out of your size range?
MODS: In the event that I over stepped some boundaries by posting this here, please just delete. Don't bother moving to one of the other boards if you would.
