questions!!!

silly, but important question. im 6'2" 200lbs, what size bikes will fit me? i think hearing that 59.5 and up? can some correct me on that? and whats the deal with wieght? im not really into newer frames, so should i worry about older frams not being able to hold me? or is weight carried in wheels?

oh, and i got an old english three speed to cruise around on this weekend for 25 bucks, it works, but it is dirty as anything, suggestions for cleaning? soap and water?

thanks

For cleaning, soap and water is a good start, try not to power wash (high pressure) anything that may have grease inside (wheel hubs, bottom bracket, headset, etc). I use automotive chrome polish or alum polish for the metal parts. Some Simple Green or other de-greaser is good for areas of the frame that have caked on grease/dirt/grime.

Can't be much help on the weight/side issue. I'm right at 6' myself but a good 25 lbs lighter. You can check out pictures of my two current ride on my website link below.
