OK, I'm not going to build my own frame, but where else do I put this question?
I am 5' 7" with a 28" inseam. My upper body is longer than average. My friend is 6' 1" and we are the same height when sitting. It's my short legs that prevent me from being a 6 footer.
Are there any frame manufacturers that make frames for people like me? Currently I have a Cross Check but I feel like the bike is too short for me. The leg position is OK, but I feel like my upper body is too upright.
Also, my toes and hands become numb after riding for 45 minutes or so. Is this just because I haven't done a lot of riding and I am not used to it, or can it be the frame is not sized right for me?
