I size to a 62cm Surly frame--about a 34 inch standover height. Anyone know how the 59cm Randonee fram e can be the equivalent (34 inch standover) as REI's website states?
Anyone have photos of their 59cm Randonee? Seems like a sweet deal if the sizing works.

Look at the sizing chart - the 59 REI bike actualy has a 62 cm seat tube (c-t).

Thanks. I don't quite get the lack of a uniform sizing metric. Why list at 59cm when most other manufac. would list as a 62?
Most manufacturers would list the Surly as a 59cm not the Randonee as a 62. Surly measures from the centre of the BB to the top of the seat tube vs. measuring the seat tube from the centre of the BB to the centre of the top tube.

Center to Center is 59.5. The top seat tube extends past the top tube by 2.5
