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.
