I've posted a couple of times in here regarding Cervelo P3 or P2k. I'm still honing in on one of these, and I'd like you guys'/girls' opinion/experience with dealing with private bike shops. I'm 6'4", so my problem is that not too many shops have a bike big enough for me to ride. Hence, they usually fit me on the biggest frame they have and say stuff like "We can make this work for you". That sort of worries me because they launch into discussions about lengthing this or that stem. They've also told me it's a good idea to ride a frame that's a little small for me. That makes a little sense to me beings as I currently ride a 56cm road bike, and I do ok on it(albeit I have JB welded all sorts of aluminum handle-bar extenders to stretch myself out over the bike and my eyes are actually directly over the front axle when I'm riding)--about 22mph in our annual Olympic distance bike section.
So, any help you guys can give I'd greatly appreciate. Reading reviews, etc. is sometimes confusing. P3 sort of seems like a no-lose situation if I get it fit correctly. Then again, for $3,500 I would expect most of the "bugs" to be worked out of the frame and components. Is that right in your opinion?
