    shimano sells a 32 now in 105 as well as ultegra. I would have a discussion with a trusted local mechanic before doing things like altering the b screw. There is more to it than just the clearance...

    They are nice bikes, I owned a similar one for several years.

    Dont fall into the "fit" trap at this point. Get the bike set up for you by the LBS to close enough. Any bike shop worth its fee is...

    Anecdotal at best here. I have been riding 175's for years. When I bought my new group this year, I bought a 177.5 crank. I have about a 1000 miles on it so far and dont think I would do it again....

    your 6'2"? I seriously question you needing a 61" frame. I am 6'5 riding an xl sworks roubaix and still only run a 110 stem.

    I know trojan is about your height and I think he rides a 58.
