"54cm frame measured from floor to the top of seat tube."

Does that make any sense? What would the real measurement be?

Not unless it's a junior frame and those are 650's rather than 700's. Even a 43 cm frame centre to centre would give you a standover over, say, 69 -70 cm.

I'll guess and say it is a 54 and whoever posted it didn't know what that meant and guessed standover.

Rob, I think there's some of those 3TTT stems with removable faceplates in the back of Bikes on Wheels. Of course, the boxes may contain something other than stems, such as heroin, or cheerios. Worth checking out though.

The post has been updated to say center-to-top.

So... anyone else catch the interview with Case Ootes on CBC#1 a little while ago?

They were talking about the city budget and the interviewer asked him where on earth he could possibly make cuts to save money as he was suggesting. He gave two examples after thinking about it for a bit, the second one was "Bike lanes, there's a few million right there" Not that I would expect anything different from Ootes, but annoying nonetheless.

What year do these guys live in? The '50's? A white picket fence, a big ass car and a full tank of gas for every family? Don't these people breathe? I'm at a loss. Really, I am.

Colin I didn't see the baguettes on that loaded touring bike you posted! Nice!

Charlie, I KNOW what a baguette is. Gee whilakers. Sorry for killing your joke. First I'm all like "dude what's an aero lever?", then I'm all "what does that have to do with baguettes?". Now that I understand the joke, I see that it was good for a hearty chortle.

Yay, let's all celebrate by sitting at our computers.

heh, not to toot my horn, but I must agree. It's awesome. I might bring it in from the sides, but only a bit. With a shirt underneath, it's just right.

You've got a PM, rob
