Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Congrats on the new bikes. He's got that seat really high,
just make sure the seatpost is still within the minimum insertion mark.

Holy cow that seat is far back in regards to the pedals, he's sitting on top of the rear wheel.

Nice on both. Funny thing is that bigger bikes usually look more in proportion with the shifters and bars. Smaller bikes look really wacky to me just because of the proportion of the bike to handlebars and seat.

I believe she previously mentioned in the original thread that he is 6'6 or 6'7.
Now ride em till the wheels fall off.

Yes hubby and I are on opposite ends of the height spectrum. He's 6'6" (without shoes) and I'm 5'2 (without shoes as well... haha). There is still length to bring the seat higher but it's good where it is at. It's funny cause my bike looks like a little toy compared to his... oh well
