looking at 2005 azure expert. 6'3", 200 lbs., 36" inseam. am i crazy? 19" or 21"? is the 19" going to be too small? is the bike sturdy enough for my winter weight (20 lbs. more; so i lied about my summer weight too)?
thanks!

I really depends on how aggressively you ride....but...I think you'll break it. Get a MKIII !
I was offered an Azure frame as a warranty replacement for my second broken HP frame. I asked IH if it was as strong as the 04 HP frame that I broke. They didn't answer...just sent me the new HP frame. I now have both an HP and a MKIII that I regularly ride...the MKIII will probably outlast the HP.
