Hi @Mgaines425 - Thanks for reaching out!

Unfortunately, at this time we are not expecting additional inventory of the ARD 1.2 Bike. Let us know if you're interested in potential alternatives and we'll be happy to provide suggestions for you.

Yes, please let me know what would be a good alternative to this bike.

Inseam with shoes is about 34.5” and I am about 6’ with shoes on. My main purpose will be paved trail riding. This is my first step into road bikes from a hybrid type bike.

Hi @Mgaines425 - Thanks for these additional details!

The Co-op ADV 2.2 may be a great alternative for you. It was made for riding paved and gravel roads, so while it will bring you speed and efficiency upgrades, it can also handle some tougher conditions. This can open up possibilities for riding a bit more than on a standard road bike. We are expecting inventory of these around mid-October. With your height and inseam, a size XL should be a good fit, though it is hard to say for certain without having you give the bike a test ride.

If you are keen on a more specific road bike, the Cannondale Synapse lineup is a good one to look into. We are expecting the Synapse Carbon 105 around mid-December. This bike would be great for longer rides and designed to do well on climbs. We would recommend the 56cm size with your measurements. 

All of these dates could fluctuate based on shipping and processing variables, so we suggest keeping an eye on the website to best keep track of availability. 

Hopefully this helps!

Thank you for the recommendations! I found another bike that I think will fit my needs fairly well - the CTY 1.2. I am having trouble deciding on a size. I feel I may be in-between sizes for the L & XL. With shoes I'm 6' and my inseam is between to 34"-34.5" with shoes. Can you help? Thanks!

Hi @Mgaines425 - It's great to hear you found a bike that is what you're looking for!

The standover height for the size XL CTY 1.2 is ~32.4", so with the measurements you shared, that should be a good fit. With that, you can also order the bike to your local REI and test ride it at pick up to make sure it fits correctly.

Hopefully this helps!
