I went by a LBS some months ago and was fitted for a road bike, did the barefoot stand with the board wedge up into the undercarriage, and after some arm measurements he stated, 58 cm is your perfect fit.
Now I am a rather tall person with rather long legs . wear 33 pant inseams and I am 6ft 2in.
I did find a used bike at another LBS and it was a nice cad 4 it was a little large at 60cm but I ve adjusted and have the seat for and aft handlebars set, and seem to really fit the bike.
Yesterday I was drooling over a sweet looking seven titanium bike it was only a 55 cm really small for me so he did a fitting with a tool that many of those specialized bike store use where you stand with your heels touching a board and press the measuring stick into the undercarriage as before.
he plugged the number in to a bike frame sizing slide rule and came up with 61 cm..
thats a pretty big spread in my book from 58 cm to 61.
has anyone seen this before, could it be one is a relaxed fit with handlebar adjustment up with the 58,
and a more reaching profile with the 61.
Wow this needs to be checked out before I spend 3 grand on a new bike.:
