With tremendously long legs, ape arms and a short torso, fitting me to any bike has been difficult. I currently have a 62 cm Madone and a 58 cm Bailey CX. I feel comfortable on both, but I have to set the cockpit up high to reduce the drop from the seat (I am NOT a road racer by any "stretch." If I don't consider custom, I have a good idea of what I need for frame size. I just want to be able to ride bikes (my size) from different manufacturers to compare them. I've never been able to do that. Waiting for the "demo vans" to pull into town is one thought, but I don't believe that happens too often. Maybe custom is the way to go (start saving.....now.)
