In preparation for a trip through France next summer I've been tasked with finding dad and I suitable rides. We'll be going for it, about 80 miles a day for a week, and both of us naturally need comfortable bikes.
I'm actually happy with my ride, about which I've posted before, I think it fits me, but I want to make sure, not being hugely experienced on bike sizing.
I'm coming up on 6' 2'' with an inseam of 32'', my dad is 5' 10" with the roughly the same inseam and a shorter upper body. Basically, what bike sizes do we need? My current bike is 22.5'', and I'm rather in love with it so I want to do the trip on that really, but any problem with size will probably become more and more evident the more miles we do.
So what's our range? would a bike of 23.5'' come in to my dad's category?
Also, were the Raleigh Road Ace's good bikes, and would one of those suit the kind of trip we're planning on doing?
