44cm - is that center to top?

my proverbial tool of employment is more than likely longer than your legs
It is a genuine adult size.....prestigio
Mar 28, 2002 8:46 PM
Ahem....it is going to be a 42cm c-c, 44cm c-t.

Cheers
as they only use 1/2 the materials to make itjohn holmes
Mar 28, 2002 9:01 PM
you should get a discount.

you may want to add some sandbags to it as the uci weight minimum is just over 15 pounds.

at least youll be eye level with any recumbent riders.
Tried using "less material" excuse for more discountsprestigio
Mar 28, 2002 11:05 PM
but didn't work. On the consolation side, I always end up saving on jersey and shorts. Youth size fits me well.
Hey, John--you got something against short people?Slipstream
Mar 29, 2002 6:45 AM
If it wasn't for short people we wouldn't have had the Wizard of Oz. And what about Napoleon? And Danny DeVito?

Be careful, you are being monitored and we know when you are not home, so you better secure your bike up real good or someone will get it and shorten the frame by about 20cm. What will you do then?

cheers!
