    First Roadbike: rebuilt cannondale r300

    Hello

    I've been looking for my first road bike and I found a 2000 cannondale r300 that has been rebuilt with SRAM apex complete group set, mavic askium wheels and gatorskin tires. The frame is a 52cm. I am about 5'6" and I am about to grow being only a sophomore in highschool. If possible id like to have this bike for the rest of highschool. Would this bike be a good option?



    Thanks!

    I'm 5'11" and ride a 56cm. You shkuld be fine. There is usually a bit of wiggle room for bike sizing, depending on your inseam, arm length, torso length, bu that sounds like a good size to start out with, for your height.

    by the time you grow hopefully you will be more flexible too. then all you need is to raise that seatpost and a longer stem.
