A silly bike swap

Amazing stuff – Redcoat and I are within 1/2″ of the same height. Check out the photos of us swapping bikes…

For those who are curious:
Redcoat: 27″ toptube, 120mm stem
Walt: 24″ toptube, 90mm stem

Yes, I am all legs, with a stumpy little torso and no arms. And Redcoat is like the AntiWalt – stubby little legs on an enormous torso and long arms.

Goes to show, I guess, that picking a bike based purely on your height is always pretty dumb.
