Most builders will tell you that a bike has the best proportions around 54-56cm in size. Yamaguchi will tell you that a 49cm bike will bring all frame design problems to the forefront. Modern cycling tells you that the tighter, more compact the frame is, the stiffer, lighter and most importantly, pro it is. All that applies here. Is Arik short? Or just going for that über pro look?

      Such a passive way to point it out without “pointing it out”.
