I'm new to the forum and serious cycling in general. I recently purchased a 2003 Jamis Nova for commuting. I'd been told it's good to go a little smaller with cross bikes. I'm about 5'10" with about a 32" inseam. I bought a 53 as a) it was the largest size available at my LBS, and b) it was a great deal.
I feel pretty good on the bike and think the fit is decent, but when on the brake hoods with my arms slightly bent, I'm definitely seeing the front hub. I'd been told it should be obscured, but that is only the case if I have my arms stiff and I'm all the way back on my seat. Otherwise it feels ok. My seat height is good, I'm in a good position in relation to the crank, and I don't feel cramped.
I'm thinking I'll ride it for a while and adjust it as needed. Any thoughts? Thanks!
