Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

:i Well, not seeing you on the bike may have made my comment premature, (not immature) but the seat post is pretty high or exposed and the stem has lots of spaces and it flipped up too which lead me to comment that this looks like compromising for a fame that is a bit too short for you. However, perhaps you need a taller frame with a shorter than normal top tube?

I have two comments:
1. Your 13 y/o daughter rides the same size bike as the 5'11" Jeremy Powers?
2. Never thought I'd be jealous of a 13y/o's bike, but I am.

Thanks. The stem is actually straight - optical illusion from the front with my heart rate watch holder.

It is a 54 cm frame , It is a little tall for her to ride right now. It is a wall hanger until she gets a little taller. I will wait until she is full grown to cut the seat mast to her size. She is Jeremy Powers number one fan and has been following him on the web and seen him at many races since she was 10. She has meet him in person at five races . More of a fan memorbila item than an actual riding bike at this point. She has a wall of Jelly belly pictures, and autographs , Jerseys etc.. She can tell you at anytime what race he is going to and what place he got in his last race. It gives here inspriation to get out and ride her current bike and keeps her intrested in pro cycling. I bought all of the component sligtly used and have around $1100 in the bike.
