    Thank you everyone who offered suggestions on how to find a bike that fits. After getting fit-kitted
    I learned that my torso is shorter than usual, and my legs longer than usual for a short guy. Which
    explains why I always felt too stretched out on every bike I had tried. The folks on this newsgroup,
    and Mark Hickey, suggested I look at women's-specific frames. After test-riding a few, I found a
    nice little 51cm Specialized Allez Dolce that rides like a dream and climbs beautifully. I'm a happy
    guy. And it doesn't even look like a "girl's" bike! If only it was red!

    Now, to figure out what to do with the upgrade components I bought and put on my old road bike
    frame. Be right nice to find a beater road frame that better fits me that I could turn into a
    rainy day bike!
