How do you know your bike is the right size?
So.... I've been off bike for a few years and my growing gut convinced me I needed to get back on. After months of shopping I decided on a All-City Macho Man. The bike shop didn't have my size in stock (6'5" with 32" inseam) but I test drove another bike that was 61cm and it felt good so that's what they ordered for me.
Fast forward a few weeks and I picked up my bike last night, they didn't have the peddles I wanted so I brought the bike home with no pedals and will pick those up today. Last night while putting my saddle bag on and what not I threw my leg over the bike without shoes on and my crotch barely clears the top tube. I know with shoes, it will give me a little bit more height, but is this right? I've never been truly fitted for a bike so I want to make sure it's the right size before I put any miles on it and loose the ability to return it.
