Hello all, names Jon an im a newbie from SoCal

I've been coming to this forum alot recently for advice and you guys are great!
So il get to it, I just started college and would like to use that as an advantage to bike alot an commute to get in better shape. Im 5'8.5 with a 34" (Wow, I know right) im looking for a CX because I admire the sport and the bikes. Just wondering my size im going to look at a 54" Novara xr tomorrow and see how that fits.
Thanks guys.

Welcome to Bike Forums.
I guess you mean a 54cm frame.
Good luck finding the right bike. Post pics when you get it.
