Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Nice Bike, Pete! It'll make a good ride for a taller Clyde!

By the way, this subforum is a no flame zone!

Cool! Another bike pusher!!! You're my kind of guy/gal! I keep thinking that this forum gets a lot* of people just starting out or returning to the sport and who need an appropriate bike. And it's so hard to find good tall ones!

There is no way that is a 63cm bike, looks about like a 56 with 2 inches of spacers on top the headtube.

Seems like a good deal if you like used shorts

I dunno, I rode a 58 and the triangle on the headtube looked a lot more "scrunched" than that one does. So I'd think it's probably a 63.. those wheels look *tiny*.

Agreed, it looks like a pretty good deal. I'd ditch the shorts, though

Seriously, are those used shorts? If they are, why would anyone want to wear them? Isn't that kinda like wearing another guy's underwear?? I'll pass.

400.00 seems like a solid deal... 63cm frame would be suited for someone 6'5 or taller...

I am 6'3 w/ 34" inseam and ride a 60cm..
