I just cracked my top tube yesterday and am in need of a new frame. My last two were bought used off craigslist and did not really fit me seeing as I am 6'3". I'm thinking I wanna skip the bs and just buy a new frame that will have a long enough top tube for me. I am on kind of a budget right now because I need a new car before winter. I've found two frames that are full CrMo that are within my budget and was wondering if they are worth buying. Both frames are 2012 Colony frames. The teddy and the living are what I am looking at. They are both $199, so if anyone has any reviews on these that would be very helpful, otherwise if you can recommend a different frame that would be in my price range, that would be good too. I ride mostly street, some park and am not looking to spend more than $200.

I'm thinking I might just suck it up and buy a 21" frame. My last frame was 20.75 I think and I did have some issues with slamming my knees into my stem and what not.

I'm looking at the two colony bikes here: https://www.sidewallactionsports.com

Is that extra 0.5/1" really going to make that much of a difference?

20.75 and 21 aren't much different you'll still slam your knees on your stem
