Opinions? Looks good for the money (£550).

What size would people say is best for me? I don't really have a chance to try because my LBS doesn't stock Trek bikes, however I was going to get a 55.5cm Boardman comp SC.

Would you say 56cm will be ok?

Edit:
nice cheers :)

Well, unfortunately i've just found out that trek are ship to store only which rules them out for me :(

So, can anyone help me spec a bike via ribblecycles? (I have emailed but am unsure when i'll get a reply).

    Just bought a Trek 1.2 triple, first road bike for about 30 years, love it.
  • :) glad to hear it! definitely swaying that way myself.

    I'm a tad confused though.. and this is why :)

    People i've ask about the boardman bikes say that a 55.5cm bike would be best, so i'm thinking a Trek 56cm will be fine.
    However on the tredz website the size guide HERE says I should be looking at 58cm bike.

    So i'm very confused :(

    My first roadie was a black Trek 1.2 and within a couple of months I upgraded to a compact and 27 on the back. I've now upgraded to a full carbon scott and tend to leave the Trek for Turbo work, but it's still a great bike and I'd highly recommend it for the money.
