I did a Google search on it and only came up with Down Cycles at a price of $849. That seems high to me if you'd have to replace hubs, rims, shifters, etc. to be dependable on a long tour. What...

I ride a CC as my road/town bike. Its a 54. For reference, I'm 5'9" with a 29-30" pants inseam (not riding inseam). Although I didn't do a formal fit test and rolled the dice, the 54cm CC fits me...
