pls. check out www.cebucycling.com for better help.

Medyo complicated magpa bike fit if you do it yourself. You'll need to do a little research. Try starting with "bike fit" sa google. If you want hassle free, I heard ang YKK mo bike fit. This will save you a lot of time. Not sure how much it costs but i think its around P500 something. That way you'll know what size is good for you. Eldy and Warren are planning to sell their road/tri bikes. Send them a text message for more info. +63.922.936.9290 eldy, +63.918.692.1331 warren.

Yes, check what frame size fits you best. I you're size 51 or 52, Warren's bike would be a nice bike. Still in good shape with a classic Cannondale Frame thats still Made in USA.
