After a pretty long list, I've narrowed my new bike down to two choices; a Brodie Romax and a Kona Jake the Snake. Unfortunately, the local shops don't really bother with cyclocross bikes so the decision has come mainly from looking over the specs and reading reviews online rather than test riding. I live in a remote area and would have to drive 8 hours to actually test ride any bikes.
One local shop has a JTS 56cm which seems like a good fit but maybe a 58 would be better. But.. they don't have a 58 in stock and would have to order one for me.
Another shop sells Brodie but they don't have a Romax in stock. So again, I'd have to special order it which means I'm stuck with it even if it isn't a good fit. I talked to someone at Brodie and they only have 56cm and 60cm left. I know a 60 would be too big
I'd really like to hear from owners of either of these bikes about their body and bike size.
