Hi All,

Wonder if anyone could help, Im looking at a Colnago M10 in size 52S.

Im 5ft 8.5, would that frame be too big for myself, or would I get away with it.

Cheers all

    You might get away with it but I would have thought it would be on the large side for you. 50s and 52s have the same reach according to the geometry charts so difference will largely be in how much seat post you have showing and the height of the bars.
  • im thinking of getting the colnago clx 3.0 frame for £1699, and building it up, im 5ft 5 and 31inches inside leg was quoted as needing a 48 cm frame, as colnago sloping frames are 4cm less then a standard bike, so you probably need a 50cm frame,

    52s if far too big, you need either a 48s or 50s depending on your measurements.
