I understand that geometries are different, but generally. If I bought myself a Rocky Mountain Boroughs that is a 56cm would I be comfortable at 6'2" tall. The deal is great, especially with the profile back hub and deep V wheel. Bike looks immaculate and probably was only taken out for about 20 miles. I ride a 57cm every once in a while and it seems ok. I'm sure I could get something a little more comfortable.
In short: 6'2" -- 56cm ??

i say no. i am 6'0" and i ride a 57 or 58cm. you can always add "more seatpost" to a certain point, but you need to pay attention to the top tube length as well, or you're gonna have your knees in your bars.

buy it, take all the components off. sell the frame. buy frame that fits. voila!

Jack the seat post up, for every cm it goes up, you get +1 cool point!
It might, if you took the seatpost up a lot. I'd hold out for a 58cm though.

TT length is arguable more important than ST length. 56cm is going to be much too small a frame for you.

Anyone know if the Rocky Mountain Boroughs is track legal?
depends on your arm length. if they're not too long, then the 56 might work.

I went out and rode my 56.5cm old sears roadbike frame. It seemed ok. I might just get it and sell the frame if worst comes to worst.
I am 6'2'' and I ride a 56cm. It works for now, just moved the seatpost up. I am looking for a bigger frame though.
