    help on finding good used road bike for 6 foot 5 guy

    Hi all,

    I'm in Calgary, although don't mind using mail order, I'm really looking for an Allez 60cm road bike.
    Anyone know of any dealers, or I guess private sellers, who would sell these?

    Thanks
    Stu

    Specialized Allezs have been made a long time - are you looking for the old steel cro-moly ones, or the more modern aluminum and aluminum/carbon models? My former roomie was a very strong 6'4", and the only bike that didn't creak under him was a Cannondale. Having said that, the C'dale was one of the few available oversized aluminums back in the day. An older Masi 3V would be sweet for you, too; I just wouldn't recommend anything with the older smaller diameter tubing - it just isn't stiff enough for a big guy. Best of luck.

    Kijiji would be your best bet for finding used bikes. I've seen different sizes of bikes there and I'm pretty sure you'll find a Specialized brand in there. Good luck on your search!
