Another frame sizing question
So I've looked around and read various bike sizing charts and sites and being 6'-3" the frame I "should" be buying is in the 60cm range. I just sold my first fixie that was a 62cm simply because it felt too tall. I come from a BMX background and just recently switched over to riding a 24" cruiser. I dunno, I just feel better on a more compact frame, something around a 54-55cm which seems to appropriately fit somebody 6" shorter than me.
So after all that rambling, the question is, am I missing something on buying the suggested frame size or am I going to run into longterm problems by buying a bike that is a few cm smaller than recommended?
I usually use the seat-of-the-pants test on most everything I purchase but I have to admit that I don't know much of anything about road or track bikes but I"m hungry to learn before buying the next one.
THanks all, NAES
