    In Australia we refer to your HOA s a Body Corporate. With 56 units you really should have a managing agent although 56 may not be enough units for a live in manager. Around 30 units would be a...

    How many units in your HOA?

    How much do you put towards upkeep each and how much are you willing to spend for a manager. There would have to be a LOT of members in your HOA to support a live in...

    Standover is nice but far from the most important fit requirement. Certainly not the way that I would size a bike. I'd be more concerned about seat tube angle @ the top tube length.

    Reach and stack are VERY good measurements for comparing frames. However they are only measuring the frame from the Bottom Bracket forwards. They don't describe behind the BB and saddle position....

    The new frame has a half a centimetre longer top tube AND a 1 degree more relaxed seat tube angle. This adds up and is what I would expect to see between two frames which were pretty much the same...

    I've never used a noseless saddle yet in principle you move the saddle backwards to take the weight off your hands, not forwards. I have no idea why the manufacturer recommended that you move it...

    In my experience a 5 year old will not have outgrown a bike with 16" wheels. OK, I'm a short guy but still, I was riding a bike with 16" wheels until I turned 12.

    Photo's would help.

    Beers are BITTER, not Sour. Different taste buds..

    In Australia, Bitter is part of a beers name such as Victoria Bitter (VB), or Melbourne Bitter.

    Am I missing something? Are there new beers...

    Hi, I think that you should ask this question in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. This is more a mechanical question rather than a fitting question.

    165mm cranks are still way long for the average short person of say 5' 3". 700c wheels are too big for their bikes as well. I built a custom bike with 140mm cranks and 650c wheels. Despite the...

    Your not going to have a lot of luck with different options for a 25.4mm (1") clamp size. Thats an old, old standard. 31.8mm is the new standard, and before that 26mm was the standard. Your going...

    Well, maybe in this case you would be better off with 165mm cranks. The shorter cranks will enable the saddle to be set further back for the KOPS position, which will take the weight off your hands...

    If your actual inseam is about 820mm rather than 787mm then yes, you can use longer cranks than 165mm. 170mm would be good although 165mm may still work for you well.

    Also I don't think that KOPS...

    Cranks change everything. A fitting that works with one length of cranks doesn't work the same with a different length of cranks. I wouldn't trust ANY fitting data that has you with only 2-3 cm of...

    Your short inseam is throwing a spanner in the works for the fit calculator and I don't think its giving you good advice.

    A saddle setback of 1.7-2.1 cm is ridiculous. That's a time trialling...

    I haven't done the maths but the fact that the Votec DOES have a half a degree slacker seat tube angle should add up. If the seat tube angles were the same then I would be concerned. Half a degree...

    Well that sounds good. I'd still want to compare the seat tube angles between the 2 frames just to make sure everything adds up. The Votec, going by the figures should have a more relaxed(lower...
