Height of seat, length of top tube, stem height and length, angle, size and drop of handlebars, where your feet are on the pedals, crankarm length and size of frame all help to make a bike feel right. You have to adjust a little bit at a time to avoid discomfort. Peter White and the forum post mentioned above will both help with this. It's a long road to proper fit, and I find myself doing it every year as I age . For me, I start with the pedals and cranks, then set seat height, then worry about the bars and stem . Others will have different methods .
