    Don't see why not, especially since you already have a CLydeworthy set of wheels on hand.

    It looks like a good deal, but maybe on the small side for you. You will probably end up with 3 inches of drop from the saddle to the handlebars. If that's the fit you want, go for it. You will be able to bring the bars up with a 40 degree stem, but only you can tell if it will be enough.

    Yeah, I was also thinking maybe a bit small for you. I have a friend riding a 56 at 5'10, very fit lanky rider. Just wondering how you'd fit as a larger rider, maybe not as flexy as my friend ( I don't know you but you seem a pretty heavy weight for the height). That's alotta cramping going on to fit in the cockpit of the bike. Of course there is the stem swap.

    I wonder what the seller means by upgraded to an Ultegra double? It was Ultegra to begin with. Maybe he means the double is better than a triple? Plus she lists all the specs which show the same bbspindle on the triple as the double. Seems strange but maybe he copied the specs from another site, maybe befoe th swap.

    Nice bike though! I saw one back then and wanted one real bad!...But if it doesn't fit well, it aint worth having, will not be a joy to ride!


    See here, specs as a triple!
