A lot of the bikes in this thread are obviously too small for the people who ride them.
I often see children riding bikes which may have fit years ago but are now much to small. Is it common in the US to ride those tiny bikes? Why not buy a bike in the right frame size? Then you don't need millions of spacers and those ultra long seat posts.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain.
its too 650C
but we already have a nice set of 650C wheels and the frame was super cheap.
it was a budgetary consideration. For $400 of brand new frame what would have been faster?
it may help you feel smug to have no spacers on your bike, and sure it looks better, but from a pragmatic perspective the only thing we are giving up is, well nothing really. Its not a carbon fork or anything in danger of snapping.
a short/tall bike like a cannondale might fit better but they don't sell anything fast for $400
a bigger cervelo would have been too long

Rather than look back and say "why?", look forward and say "why not?!"

I was thinking the same thing. I still think of it as my new bike. (I actually have a Litespeed that's a little newer) I'm amazed by the seeming endless number of folks who seem to get a new top end bike (at least) each season around here.
