The more I look at other people's bikes the more I am thinking that mine is too big for me. They all have their seats jacked up higher than the bars. Mine is level and I wouldn't dare move it up any higher. Maybe it is too big for me! Could it be?

If so it would explain the looks I get from the kids at the bike shop. They are thinking this old lady is delusional!

Yep, I know what you mean. People here at the RV park look at me like I was an escapee from a funny farm as I precariously peddle my lardy butt around on my new bike....."HEY, GET OUTTA MY WAY, I MIGHT FALL ON YA!" I yell...(haven't bought a horn or bell but think I will because it's funnier, matches me....

I wondered if my bike was too big for me, too and raised the stem about three inches and everything was just fine...I love my HUGE (and I mean HUGE) seat. I don't think your bike is too big at all.

Well, what do I know? I used to be 5'8" and now I am a puny 5'4" and really am a greenhorn around biking pros...but I think you've inspired me, to name my bike something too....she's a girl, a girl's mountain bike. What do you think I should call her?
