How tall are you? About 6'?

If the bikes fit you, I would prefer the Raleigh over the Centurion.
I'm definately not 6 foot. More like 5' 9.5". I ride a new'ish 55 Lemond though and it fits pretty good. Is there something different about the fit of older bikes?

both those bikes look much bigger then listed. i'm about your height and find that a 55-56 is about right, but i would definitely stand over those, cuz i'm guessing they're more like 58's. which is "do-able", just watch your dismounts.

Did I say Raleigh? That's what happens when I try to flip through multiple forum pages in quick succession and seeing a Raleigh just before posting about a Bianchi!

Yeah, those bikes look pretty big.
