Bike fit question: a big guy with short legs
So, Im noticing that mie bike fits me fine from the feet to the hips, but between the hips and the hands it feels too small. I'm riding a 2008 Fuji Absolute which sizes as a 19" mtb/comfort sizing, though it's really a cross/hybrid bike.
Are there brands that have longer cross bars without higher standover heights or am I relegated to custom bikes if I want something close to what Im looking for?
My standover is about 31 inches, my current frame is 30 to the top of the top tube. My wife who is 5'4", her bike is only an inch shorter than mine. Hip to shoulder I'm 23 inches.
