Guys, great new forum and great timing. I am heading to the bike shop today to pick up the new hybrid I just ordered but I do have some reservations. I am a noob to biking, but did as much research as I could looking for a decent bike to fit our budget (my wife and I are both getting bikes) of around $400 each. My biggest concern is frame size. I am 5' 8" but my inseam is less than 28", I weigh about 230 and have a long torso. When I straddle even a small frame (17") there is some issues with comfort (soft parts gettin crowded) So I did find a bike that came in xs (15") and the bike shop guys are saying this looks right for me. I guess I am just self concious because this hybrid looks more like a BMX frame and I do think I need to push the seat back a bit, but over all it rides fine. Would it be better to go with a 17" frame for more roomieness in the riding posture. I can deal with the crowding if needed? Any one else have similar issues or concerns?
