years ago a road bike would fit me. now they shortened the wheel base to the point that my feet hit the front wheel and my seat is all the way back and needs to go back another 2". i'm 6' 3". my road bike is 5yrs old. i was new to bicycling then and only concerned about the stand over height. if i want to ride any distance i need to have a longer chainstay 18". my road bike is 16" chainstay. a touring frame does work for me, but they are heavy. knowing what i know now, i'll pay more attention to the geometry.
has any one had the same experience?
