    I want to switch my old, piece of crap frame with a slightly newer, better looker one. the new frame is 56cm, i'm not sure what the old one is exactly but i measured it to around 55cm. can i have them swapped or will it be much more difficult that i am thinking?

    1 cm is not going to make much of a difference.

    Changing over all of your components from one frame to another is not that big a deal. If you are doing it yourself, there are some special tools that you will need. if you are having it done, check with your local bike shop and see what they will charge you and then you can decide if it's worth it.

    Are they both steel? If not, make sure the seat tubes are the same diameter.
