Here's my Bike Fit results ... eFit_1.jpg ... eFit_2.jpg

I'm interested in either a Focus Izalco Ergoride or a Giant TCR which would be the better fit ? or is there something else out there. I'm not racing or doing any type of events just for fitness and a change from off road. I've 2K max to spend but less would be better :D

    according to the second diagram the toptube is 53cm

    any road bike around that tt should be suitable for you if correctly adjusted

    I had a fitting on what looks like the same system as yours, years ago before buying my first proper road bike. I mainly used the suggested top-tube length and seat height I required (I'm tall) to narrow down the frame sizes I should be looking at.

    On buying a bike, I tried to set it up to match the bikefit's suggested measurements. As a starter, the position was OK. A few years after that I went for a professional fitting (Adrian Timmis @ Cadence Sport) where my position was tweaked considerably, producing noticeable benefits and ridding me of some niggling pains I'd suffered with on and off.

    The upshot: treat the measurements on the computer print-out as ballpark guidelines for helping to choose a bike to fit, but not for finessing your position on the bike.
