6'7" and trying to find the right bike
Hey everyone -
I have heard such good things about this website and my friends recommended I come here to get information they couldn't offer. My only biking experience is mountain biking when I lived in Colorado. But now I have moved back to Minnesota and am looking to get a road bike for the 8 mile bike to work. My problem is I am 6'7" with a 37" inseam, so bikes are very hard to come by. I am thinking the closest I can get is a 64cm frame to my height, but even those are tough to find, unless a bike orders me all new parts. I found this frame on craigslist, but am curious how much you think the bike is worth?
Just looking to cruise around uptown/downtown Minneapolis, and bike to Roseville to work some days (8 miles each way)
Also - do you recommend a single speed or fixed gear bike for a pretty flat 8 mile ride? I would be buying used, so I assume the maintenance costs would factor in too.
