Which size did you go for large or X- Large?

    I'm 6ft (well 5ft 11 3/4 according to my GF) and have just received the Large which is a perfect fit for me. I think at 6ft 2 you'd be in between Large and Xlarge. Give them a ring and ask would be the best option.

    The traditional response if you are inbetween sizes:

    - If you like to ride fast, in a low aggressive position, and intend to ride it on 'shorter' rides then get the large (the smaller size).
    - If you are less flexible, prefer a longer audax/sportive type ride then get the XL which will probably have a more relaxed/comfy fit on you.

    Hi jakesurf

    I received my L London Road (hydraulic brake version) yesterday.
    I'm 6'1" with long legs (34" inside leg) and the bike fits me very well - really happy with the position
    Here are a couple of bad photos taken at work just now showing my saddle height (excuse the reflective stripes in the one taken with flash! As you can see I've got it set reasonably high. If you have longer legs than me or if you want less of a drop to the bars then you might want to get the XL?
