Umm, i’m pretty sure since the invention of the ‘ordinary bicycle’, bikes were made in different sizes. The ‘ordinary bicycle’ was made with different wheel sizes to accomodate the length of the users legs needing to reach the cranks that were on the front hub.
And forever onwards through time, bikes have been made in varying sizes to fit all body shapes and lengths. Why, I’ve had many sizes of ‘classic’ frames myself, whilst trying to figure out what size was correct for me.
go get fitted up before your knees disconnect themselves from your soul.
Also, try selling your awkward tubs on here to someone who’ll put them on a track bike and ride it on the track, and with the money buy yourself a cell mallet in a size XS if you think you need it.
There’s only one thing worse than a bike that isn’t fitted correctly, and that’s a bike that doesn’t actually fit!
if you are in love with this frame i would have thought you build it up the way it was intended to be built as a roadie with some good parts not as a conversion?
i know i sound like a c**t but if you are in love with it, i dont think your showing it much love.
Hey Guys, you probably want to give Marty a break, first build and it might not be perfect but thats ok. On the first build you work out what is right for you and then work it out from there. It’s all good.
