    And that tube looks round. Why wouldn't you (the OP) just slap on a clamp-on front derailler? Seems like a simple fix.

    I forgot to add:

    5. If disc brakes really took 3 weeks to break in, no one would be using them. Do not confuse the mal-adjusted brakes on your test ride bike with non-broken in disc brakes....

    1. No, swapping brand new 10-speed Tiagra for 105 is not worth it.

    2. I would not buy a bike from a shop that let me test ride a bike with non-working brakes.

    That's not a 58cm frame. Maybe a 52cm. $100 is a great price though. Buy it and drive it out to Philly where you can sell it for $300!

    It's a sloping top tube frame. Someone 5'0" could likely ride that bike. I think the OP at 5'4" will fit fine on it or even the next size up.

    Erm, what is your expectation regarding a fitting? If you request a "pro" fitting from a shop, you may be looking at $100 or more. Given that you already bought the bike, I'd suggest searching online...
