As we know, the bead seat diameter of the rims is 622mm. On my screen it's about 622mm from the bottom bracket to the bottom of the saddle. The top tube is even shorter. That frame is small. I think the top tube slopes because the replacement fork is shorter than the original.

DO YOU EVEN LIFT BRO? NO PAIN, NO GAIN!

I can do a 20 mile ride @ 20mph pace w/ no problems or discomfort at all. What I'm talking about is when you push yourself to go hard... Last weekend I did 36 miles at a very fast pace on the new 60T(100 gear inches) setup and my legs were burning bad going into headwind at mile 30, it's a good pain tho, once the endorphins kick in it allows you to push past the discomfort. You should know this. My neighbor owns a shop and is a bike mechanic(he also gives me **** for the bling), but the fit is fine he says. I do agree tho, proper bike fitment is a equally important as proper form when lifting.

IT"S NOT EVEN THE ENDORPHINS BRO

Unfortunately I can't post links, but it has been proven that endorphins are too large to pass through the blood brain barrier. google runner's high ny times to see the articles.

I believe you stopped reading the article too early...

Yes, Running Can Make You High - The New York Times

" Researchers could detect endorphins in peopleís blood after a run, but those endorphins were part of the bodyís stress response and could not travel from the blood to the brain. They were not responsible for elevating oneís mood. So for more than 30 years, the runnerís high remained an unproved hypothesis.

But now medical technology has caught up with exercise lore. Researchers in Germany, using advances in neuroscience, report in the current issue of the journal Cerebral Cortex that the folk belief is true: Running does elicit a flood of endorphins in the brain.
The endorphins are associated with mood changes, and the more endorphins a runnerís body pumps out, the greater the effect."

"The data showed that, indeed, endorphins were produced during running and were attaching themselves to areas of the brain associated with emotions, in particular the limbic and prefrontal areas."

No, "Bro", I don't lift. As I tell everyone, the top half of me is lazy. As long it's just lactic acid in your muscles, and not actual joint pain, keep on cycling.

It is only an unproven hypothesis to those who don't run.

Whatever the reason, the only way I have been able to replicate it otherwise is on a fixed gear bike.

It's not that it is ugly, it is just that there is far too much "gold" and it makes it look kind of cheap. That isn't the intention I am sure, but that is the result.

Try reading the findings that are newer than nine years old...science seems to progress rather than regress, unlike this thread.
