I found a crazy deal for a new, unused salsa ala carte 2008 frame.
I'd like to get it and build it with drop dirt bars and fat 26" or 650B tyres, kind of like this
However, I'm 5'9" and the frame is large. As a rider I like big frames rather than small ones. Usually when I'm between sizes, I round up...er... sometimes I round up two sizes. It's that feeling of being on top of the world...
Besides I'm not too fast or anything, I don't do technical mountain biking etc. I 'm going to use this as an all-rounder, day-to-day city bike, maybe ride a dirt trail and such.
But even so, will this be a little too big for me?
will the drop bars make it much worse?
