Want to Buy - 52 cm Road Bike

Want to Buy - 52 cm Road Bike

A good friend's road bike was stolen and I offered to help find a used replacement.  She's 5' 6" so I'm guessing she'd ride a 52 cm frame.  Not looking for a Pinarello Prince with Campy Record, looking for a good entry level bike.  Please email or call Gary at 410.467.3393.

Re: Want to Buy - 52 cm Road Bike

Gary, before you assume a size, I HIGHLY recommend either getting a professional fitting ($200'ish at Lutherville) or at a minimum taking ALL of her measurments per the instructions at the wrenchscience.com website where they have an EXCELLENT fit calculator.  In my experience getting a proper fit, dialed in, has so much to do with cycling that it can be the difference between really enjoying it and just being a casual rider.

BTW, they aren't kidding... follow ALL of the measuring instructions exactly (sock feet, 1" book binding, etc.) and take each measurment three times and average the results before you plug in each piece of the 9 part (I think) puzzle.  Good luck.

Gary, I've got a 52cm GT in 6061 Aluminum.  It's blue and white and in great shape.  It's 9 speed Ultegra- I'd put 32 spoke Mavic wheels on it.  If interested, let me know.  I'm thinking in the $500 range.
