    I live in NE Ark and ride a steel bike with full 105 and downtube shifters. A grown man on a bicycle in NE Ark is still somewhat of a rarity. Fortunately there are a few riders now. I did live in Florida for a number of years and moved 'home' on the last day of May, 1999. I sure miss my biking friends in Florida.
    I am thinking of changing bikes and goind to a compact frame. Without going to a bike shop, can someone tell me if a 5' 10" person might be able to ride a 58cc compact bike confortably?

    Sounds a little big to me. Most people I know in that height range usually ride a 55-56.
