Just curious. I spent some time at the dealer, and they reccomended a 56cm bike for me. I am 5'11".
The only reason I ask, is I have the seat almost all the way down on my Trek 1.5T. There are not even markings on the post there. Most riders I see have almost 12" of post showing. I have maybe 6" or less.
I can straddle the biken and the bar is slightly touching (the boys) but I'm not resting on it.
I feel if I got a smaller bike, with a higher seat, then I would have a more bent over angle to the handlebars. For this reason, I like the seat being down low.
Do you see any reason I should have gone smaller?
