Hi all.

I'm looking at a couple the above bikes on ebay, and was unsure of sizing after reading some reviews.

I'm 5'9 with 31.5" inside leg, should I be looking at a 54 or 56cm frame?

Any advice would be much appreciated.



  • I would have thunked a 52 or 54

    TT 538 & 545 respectively
    ST 520 & 540 "
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles

    It's not just about your height and leg length. In fact, that can fairly easily be comensated for by raising or lowering the saddle. The length of the top tube can't be adjusted (though you can change the stem), so things like your arm length also matter.

    I am similar, although with shorter legs and have gone for a 54. Suits me fine. There is plenty of seatpost left as well! Evans ofen have stock so perhaps try one for size.
