That 62cm Motobecane was for a 6'1"er so I guess it makes sense now.
Yep, 6ft 0.5in tall, used to be maybe 6ft 1.5in and my Dad was 6ft 2in.

38in inseam so legs take a 64-66, some are too long in the TT even though I have a 76in wingspan, so.....

Interesting how it is to say a bike is "suitable for someone XX tall". The variations of the human body are many. I'm 6'1.5" and I prefer a 63cm and find a 64 just too big, yet Merziac is an inch shorter and he's happy with a 64cm. Just relying on seat tube length and ignoring top tubes can create issues but sellers never seem to list top tubes (or crank length) so I guess it's always always best to test drive.

I have a 38in inseam so am more leg than many and so far I have been able to make the really big bikes work in reach also but some will be too long.

Very interesting as we can see, the big silver 66cm Merz is my daily rider and the one that got me onto way bigger bikes than I had been riding all my life. Rode it and thought maybe it was an anomaly that it rode so much better so bought a big 26in, 66cm Paramount also silver and made it set to have 64cm bikes be the smallest I look for now unless something very special.

As we have been discussing in another thread, PBH is the key metric and it all builds from there, for me if I can't pedal properly for me, I won't be comfortable on the bike especially if I try to ride hard at all (for me) or very far (again for me).

@Mad Honk

Wes,
That was one of our own BF members whose wife told him not to sell it. Show us the pics of the Peloton up and running please! Smiles, MH

I saw your comment in the night, after I had gone to bed which is odd because I uploaded a link to a Super Course after you posted this.


The Peloton
​​​​​​It is completely together (just can't get it to shift with indexing!). It was completed late fall as the bad weather hit so no quality (bragging rights) photos. I haven't had anywhere to work this year as I can't get to the Co-op in Buffalo so I haven't been able to get that final adjustment to indexing. I am going to install an NOS chain which I think might solve the issue. It will be wearing tubulars (as it should be). In the photo attached I have a tubular on front and the clincher on the rear but that was just because I was playing around with trying to get indexing in an unheated garage, in sub-zero temperatures.

Locally, our government uses a lot of salt and I have learned not to ride a keeper in wintertime. I expect the weather to cooperate in a few weeks and I'll post the thread. My son graduates in April so it'll will be shining when he gets it. In the meantime, the bike is attached to the ceiling above the stairs, 10 feet up incase thieves get in again.....
