Hello, this is my first post here. I haven't ridden for 20 years and I'm going to get back on two wheels. I live in Japan and for my 183cm (6 feet) 95kg (210lb) body they don't sell properly fitting bikes so I have to import. I obviously don't need anything professional but I don't want to be lumbered with a *** either. I know everyone's advice is to ride a bike before you even think about buying it, but as you can see in my position that just isn't possible.
So...I have found a bike that isn't too expensive, but I've never heard of the make (Cube) so no idea if they are any good (that would be my first question). I ran my statistics through competitivecyclist.com's fit calculator and got this:
I have found this bike online (a Cube LTD CLS Pro 2009). They have 54cm and 58cm models in stock.
At the Cube website I found these measurements for the two models they have in stock:
Could anyone help me interpret my measurements and tell me if either of these bikes would be suitable. As you see I am doing my research, but even though I realize I'm going to be taking a chance I feel like I'm running against a brick wall.
Any help would be much appreciated from you pros.
Thanks a lot.
PS Regarding the Competitive/Eddy/French fits I'd go with comfort any day. In fact a lot of my cycling will be with my young children.
