    I regret selling my green Vitus 979, but only 20 years after the sale. Even back at my race weight of 135lbs I could still flex that frame enough to make the rear brake pads rub when climbing and...

    It looks like it- a 55cm TT is my sweet spot! I'm not buying anything (at least nothing nice) until my wife finds work, and considering she's a school teacher you may have the 55-56cm Philly market...

    I think I'm in a similar boat but scaled down. I'm only 5'8 but have a 32.75 cycling inseam (tight to crotch). Based on inseam length that puts me on a 56cm, but then I have to run an 80mm stem and...

    You have a great start with those two bikes. It's too bad the Bridgestone doesn't fit, but maybe you can sell that to fund some upgrades on the C'Dale (and maybe kick back some money to your...

    Yep, the roads look like a war zone around here too. I'm really digging my Raleigh Grand Prix with 1.25in tires and slack angles. Turned into a great early spring bike.
