    Without a chain guard, you'll be doing a lot of laundry this way.

    Ha! I have a 44 frame with a sloping down top tube so the diamond is insanely small. I can't even use regular size squeeze bottles. Once you factor in bottle cages there isn't any room left to throw an arm through. It sucks to be short.

    Do what I do: Grab the bike with your left hand on the bars and right hand on the down tube near-ish the bottom bracket. Put your right shoulder under the nose of the saddle. Pivot the bike up with your right hand and carry it with the nose of the saddle on your shoulder.

    Kind of like this (best image I could find on the internet... I will have to have someone take one of me carrying my bike up my stairs at work or home):
