Title: Bike for old b*gger starting out again
Post by: jimmybwana on May 05, 2020, 10:50:04 AM
Hi everyone,


I used to ride back in the 90's, looking at a new bike to ride flatland again, I've a hoffman but well, that won't get me far. Was thinking a Colony to start out. Any recommendations? Im 6' 1.

Hello and welcome!What trick do you want to learn and how much money do you like to spend? In general Colony is a good company I would say.

there aren't really much choices in complete bikes nowadays, if you can get the Colony buy it.

Isn't it too big? I am 1.88 m and ride 19.2" TT. But of course this is personal preference.

I think 21tt for flat is a little nuts for flat unless you do alot of tricks using pedals.  If you spend most of the time on pegs a shorter bike is great. I'm 1.89 and love my new 18.8 FEC complete...loving the low standover especially...
