Brian,

Are you warming up for the 2004 "Best Stories" award??? I think you've got it locked, so while I certainly enjoy the extensive effort involved, holy-schmoley, brother!!!

I get the fact that "front-center" is the sum total of other dimensions, the point I was making is that none of the "ways of getting" where I like it add up to less than 58.9cm

Now can we move on to why short chainstays look cooler than long ones...

Grant McLean Toronto.Ca My '79 colnago super, and '03 C40 have the same geometry

I didn't state a preferance for a front center either way because it is a "resulting" dimention based on other dimentions that are directly related to rider position and weight distribution, frame fit, or steering charactistics. There are a multitude of ways to arrive at a FC of 58.9. Which way would you prefer to get there?
