    Frame trade?

    I have a 20" green dummy that I just can't get comfortable on. I would like to go up a size, and wondering if anyone has the opposite problem.

    So, does anyone have a 22" Dummy, either color for trade?

    I was instructed by both the people at Surly as well as the people at Xtracycle to get the 18" instead of the 20"; I should have gotten the 20" as the 18" just seems a bit small for a cargobike (I am 6'0" with a 33.2" inseam). What I did to remedy the shituation was to purchase a setback seatpost, so as to gain roughly 1" of “backness”. It seems to be working out just fine.
    one by nine works just fine but single speed is all ya need

    I already had a thomson setback, 120mm stem with rise, and Titec H-bar.

    I have this chronic issue with purchasing bikes too small.

    Well for sure larger sized frames seem to make more sense for cargobikes.

    I used to be a roadie, maybe my body is permanently stretched out in the roadie position?
