change to a riser bar.. if ur steerer tube allow.. stack more spacer to raise the stack height.. alternatively can change the stem also.. higher rise stem = higher handle bar, but steering will be more twitchy..

or can mix the 3 tgt.. cfm raise high high

Hmm i need some advise on a a guy getting a ladies frame bike.

I found a bike i really like - GTw Avalanche 3.0 09 Model [XS] size. The size is perfect for me just that it's a ladies frame. I am a 1.62m tall guy who is small built. I'm about 50kg only. What are things to test for to see whether the frame is suitable for me?

Yup i really like the frame and the upgrades that the owner is willing to let go together in the bundle, but the only thing holding me back is the frame. So do you guys have any input on this?

Thanks so much.

i tried it. the frame seems to fit me. when i straddle it there is about 2-3 inches clearance. when seated, and when my foot is on the lowest part of the paddle, my knee is fully extended. so it seems to be the correct size. but i'm not sure about the geometry of a women's frame. whether it'll be suitable.
