He's giving you visual proof that all modern bikes look better in the small size. And being short of stature myself, I approve of this message.

This comment makes me recall the time a guy told me disc wheels can't make sense in cross winds.

Crosswinds are what the domestiques are for.

I think a medium size road bike with a 120mm+ stem and 75cm+ saddle height look the best personally.

Well, I'm way closer to the ground, so from my vantage point medium isn't optimal visualy.

At my age I have become comfortable in my skin and in cycling it has actually been a bonus. In climbing and in aero in particular, my size has been a benefit.

I live in a hilly area and on big group charity rides, for kicks, on a 25 to 30 mph downhill run I would tuck as tight and low as possible and catch the draft of a group farther up the road, passing a long train very fast on my right.

Would it not be *relevant* to mention whether you were or were not using disks as you sped past the very long train on your right:)

Weisan is going to check his garage for some wood planks so we can do some sweet jumps. Ask your spouse if you can come over.
