Rode bikes over the years
I've been primarily interested in riding BMX for the last few years, but now that my friends are hinting I need to ride a more grown up bike, I'm in search of a good used road bike..I've found a Roadmaster Scorcher in 56cm, just wondering what your guys take on that frame..I've seen other sources that state it's a *** bike and won't last long....it's $50...just needs a front brake.
Anyway, I need some advice on road bikes....like can I convert the brake levers to hide the cables on ANY handlebar....and what frame size SHOULD I be getting....I'm 5'9" w/ a 32" inseam..I've looked up frame sizing and they've stated somewhere between 54cm-56cm... I was also told I could actually go maybe 57-58 MAX. Any thoughts?
Thanks and hope to use this forum more....
