    I could agree with much of what you say if we were discussing a 52cm vs 62cm. A difference between 52cm and 54cm is imperceptible. Especially when compensated for by a correspondingly shorter stem.

    BTW, BB7's are better than you are. Hydro's won't make any improvement with the same tires and wheelbase. Just saying.

    I don't know. I thought the Paramount name was reserved for their top of the line road bikes. Any Schwinn I've ever seen had the Schwinn logo prominent on the down-tube and the model in smaller...

    Lose the car. Now the choice is: Bus (or train) $2.50 each way vs bicycle (value in$$$). Each time I ride I have saved $5 against the cost of the bike. In the summer and nicer weather I find longer...

    His question is clear to me. He wants to know which top tube length (55cm or 56cm) is better for him. We can't know that of course, because we don't know anything about him besides his height and...

    I don't think the trail of a bike is something I would dwell on. And as for 650B? I don't think so. Terry makes bikes for women using 650B wheels because some of them a 4'10"!! The ones that are 5'6"...

    I really don't understand the penchant for scouring Craigslist for 80's MTB's to use as commute rides. 1980 was almost 40 years ago. $145... really? $100?... I don't know... even allowing for some...

    More people ride with saddles too low than too high. 25 - 35 is a generous spread and if you are outside of that I would consider raising the saddle 5mm. Maybe more. You say nothing of where the bars...
