HI all my lovely wife is letting me get BTwin T3 bike. Not sure what size.

I am 5foot 9 1/2 with a 32 inch inside leg. I thing 57cm but not sure. The nearest store is 2 hours away and don't want to do that drive.

    Try one of the online bike fit calculators to get an idea what size is best for you.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • I got the 57 Triban 3 and I'm 5'10". Fits me ok, but you really should try it out first as we are all different.

    Not sure about the geometry of Btwin but normally a 57cm would be suitable for 6' to 6'3" or thereabouts. You would also appear to have mahoosively long legs-for you height.
    2 hour drive compared to a lot of regret when you get the wrong size.No brainer.
