Hey all, I have had my bike for about a year now and I love it. It gets me where I need to go and has yet to let me down.
The problem is that sometimes I feel like it is too big. I have read a few things and talked to the guy at a different LBS from where i got the bike, and he said that it should be adjusted so that the seat is a little bit higher than the handlebars. If I do this my tippy toes will be a good two inches from the ground.
I suppose it would be helpful if you knew a bit about my bike/riding style. It is a 20 inch frame (i think, the sticker fell off) mountain bike with disk brakes and slick-ish tires. It cost $550. I am 5'9" and i use it almost exclusively on roads.
I am wondering, first of all if it is indeed too big, and second of all what I can do about it if it is.
Thank you for your help!
