    Sizing is all over the place, even with some brands it is not consistent. Measure your chest with a tape measure. I look at the chest measurements when shopping online and know I need about 46"...

    I've always liked the looks of this bike and one is being advertised on my local CL. Unfortunately, it is blue rather than Celeste, and it appears to have some surface rust and a few scrapes....

    Another disguised Denali. This one has both Bridgestone and Cannondale stickers on it. I will admit, it looks pretty good in the pics. Good thing I know better.

    Thanks. I looked at the list of Texas rides at wheelbrothers and it appears ft. Davis cyclefest is the same weekend. I know that is a scenic and popular event, and I haven't done it before.

    Actually, the top tube on mine worked out just about right, and I don't have long arms. My converted Trek 900 has the bar reach good, but just a touch further than ideal. The crosscut is perfect.

    We have one of these racks from Allen Sports on my wife's car. Pretty decent and easy to use. A big plus is that it folds up and stows away if desired.
