I've been on two wheels for as long as I can remember. But it seems all my bikes have been of the flat bar, nobby tire, lotsa reach and elbows out variety. Recently I saved and mid 80's Schwinn road bike from a co-workers "to the dump" pile and after some metal polish on the shiny bits and new rubber I just took it for my first spin around the driveway.
First impressions are...um....compact, that would be a good word. Standover is good, But the TT length has me wondering. Looking at pictures of roadies in action make me feel like I'm postured appropriately(its not uncomfortable or anything), but its just so weird feeling. Is there a transition period for this weirdness? Will I get accustomed to it eventually? Is there anything I should look for to make sure the frames not too small for me?( don't want to plug alot of dough into something that'll cause problems down the line)
I hope to make this my commuter/weekend warrior soon so I can re-makeover my mountain bike to dirt only again.
