I found a Windsor Oxford new with blemishes for 220 bucks.. seems like a good deal, after searching around craigs and LBS around town.. the frame on the windsor seems
to be best with 4130 CroMoly frame compared to the hi-tens I've seen going for more $.
I just can't decide on the size. 51 or the 56..
since it's a cruiser/casual ride, i am thinking smaller would be better then bigger..
I used to ride a 54cm and it was a good fit, but 1 cm more and it would of been too big.
I hear BD frames run a little big so...
anything bigger than my old 54 njs track bike would be uncomfortable.
are these decent bikes for the money? 200 bucks almost seems like a joke, u can't even find a half way decent bike on Craigslist for that much.. and most LBS i've been at are way over priced.
can't decide between 51cm or 56cm my fit is usually a 54cm... so either 2 cm bigger or 3 cm smaller...
i have a felling smaller would be on the safe side as i can adjust the stem/post.
and this is just for cursing around town, not worried about max performance leg extension.
Mens 51cm fits most riders from 5' to 5'9 / Mens 56cm fits most riders from 5'9 to 6'2"
Ladies 46cm fits most ladies from 4'10" to 5'7" / Ladies 49cm fits most from 5'7" to 5'10"
If you are between sizes, choose the smaller if one has shorter torso/arms or the larger for longer arms/torsos.
Looks like a ladies 49 would be the best fit. Add truck nuts if you need reassurance. Nice looking bike.
This is kinda like saying "All the pants at the mall are too tight". It makes very little sense.
sorry got it confused with the kilo tt from BD NOTE: Sized center to center, most riders fit a size smaller than they fit in a center to top sized bike
Example - if you ride a 58cm center to top sized bike then you may prefer the 55cm Kilo TT
Please refer to the sizing charts before making your own purchase decision
