^^ 565 top tube on the biggest frame is too short for me I think. I don't think I can go lower than 575 or so because of my long legs. Thanks though!

Interesting. I don't mind riding 170mm cranks so I will look into this, though it seems the road crankset is actually more expensive than the track set ($150 vs $100). I wonder if there is any way to...
