This bike is one of the best. From 1999 it was RSP's top of the range. I love this bike, but after 15 years I've concluded that the 19" frame is to small for me (I'm 6ft 1"). Its time to make room in the shed. Someone out there less then 6ft deserves this bike :)

19" should be perfect at 6' 1". Try a bit more seat post up action.

Ya. Did the seat post up (the saddle was about 1/2 foot higher then the bars) for 15 years. It did the job but after a bout of prostatitis last year (I don't mind talking men's health), I just can't do it any more. I love this bike but in order to stay cycling I'm moving to XL frames. I've also invested in the best cycling shorts money can buy. I'm hoping all of this will fix the pain in my balls. I hope this doesn't put people off the bike. It was the prostatitis that did it, not the bike.☺
