Hi All

I am looking at buying a 2011 Specialized Langster online (so I can't go and try it for size) and wondered which size would suit me best? I am 5' 9.5" tall.

Both my road bikes are 54 (that is C-C horizontal top tube length) but I noticed that the 52 Langster has a 53.7 H top tube length and the 54 has a 54.8 H top tube length so I would appreciate some advice from Langster owners please? 52 or 54?

Cheers.

    54cm. I have a Singlecross which I think is very similar geometry (although at taller head tube). Got it in a 54cm and it's a nice fit for me, I'm 5'8 and a bit on a good day.

    you might even find a 56 is better for your height?

  • Thanks Luv2Ride - I would rather have a frame on the small side than large, so I reckon I will go for the 54. Thanks again.
