Hi all, I have a few questions about a Focale 44 Full Moon. On the ad it says its a 55cm but it also says 52cm seat tube. I'm guessing the 55cm is the top tube size? Is it a 55cm or a 52cm? I'm just a little confused on what size I should be looking at. Thanks

Some frame geometries will not be exact from what they label the size as and what the actual seat tube length is. I didn't see the exact geometry for this bike, but the 55cm could be from center of bottom bracket to top of seat tube, while the 52cm could be center of bottom bracket to center of top tube. I have never seen a mfg label their frame size from the length of the top tube.
With bikes that have sloping top tubes the actual measure of the metal does not matter. So measures are done of "effective top tube/ seat tube"
