    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.

    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?
