I have been happily rolling along on my 62cm Long Haul Trucker for the past few years. This summer I rode a friend's Roubaix and was hooked, I want to go faster.
So now I'm looking around and have found by a fitting I need a 64 cm frame. I am 6'5" and a full grown Clyde at 275 lbs.
Anybody have any success stories with large size carbon I can get in the $2000 range. Unfortunately the Roubaix model available in 64 cm is around $3500, out of my budget.
I plan to ride a Titanium frame as well before I act, but again pretty pricey.
I want to roll faster, but enjoy distance riding so any racing geometries are out, I am looking for something comfortable, but need to keep up with my skinny friends. I averaged 2 mph average speed increase cruising on the Roubaix from my LHT.
