    I don't know. The seat could do with being raised an inch or two though.
    I ride a bike. Doesn't make me green or a tree hugger. I drive a car too.

    Are you all mad!? That bike's miles too small.

    OP, sorry fella, even the best bike fitters have their limitations. You need a much much bigger frame. I hope you didn't splash the cash on this one.

    Your all missing the point here, how can he ride a bike whilst not wearing a helmet!!!!!

    Does he not realise the police will nick him straight away for that :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Nevermind the fact he's pinched the bike off a four year old as the police will never spoit that one :D:D:D:D

    The bike looks fine. You, however, are too big.
