    Too Big - Otherwise Great

      Comments about Nashbar WR1 Women's Road Bike:

      I was looking for an entry level road bike. The bike arrived within a few days of ordering it. I like how it has the two sets of breaks, came with pedals and is light weight. Plus its a nice color.

      However, I'm 5'-1" with a leg inseam of 27". The 48cm is way too tall. When I stand over the bike, the cross bar is as high as my pubic bone. The owners manual says there should be 2" distance from the top of the bike's rail to my body.

      I'm considering buying this same model but in a 44cm, but we'll see how returning this one goes first and see if their customer service can help direct me better with sizing.

      Comments about Nashbar WR1 Women's Road Bike:

      Don't let the "women's" designation fool you. If you're a shorter to average height man this will fit you just fine. I'm a man that's a hair under 5'10 and have a short-ish torso and the 54cm fits like a glove. This model has better shifters than the Nashbar AL1 (as of this writing) for the same price too. I replaced the adjustable stem with a regular one, and replaced the stock brake pads with Kool Stop dual compounds and I'm all set. Great bike for the money.
