Fuji Touring sizing guide from the experienced?
Hello Fellow Riders,
I am about to purchase the Fuji Touring 2014 model as a touring bike and general bike. The problem is, in my part of the world (Slovakia) customer service doesnt mean anything. The only dealer of Fuji bikes is 300 km from my town. He said I can order the bike and pick it up but no option of returns.
I am stuck between the M (54cm) and M/L (56cm). My measurements are a bit disporportinate:
height: 179 cm (just over 5'10)
inseam: 87.5 cm (34"+)
torso: 148cm (4'10; measured from ground to that hole in the middle of the upper ribs)
Shoulder width: 40 cm ( 15.7"; measured from pointy bone to pointy bone)
Arm span: 184 cm (6'+; measured from fingers to fingers with stretched out arms at shoulder height)
I am about to fork out a month's pay for a bike therefore, the right bike fit is causing sleepless nights :-)
Additionally, I have read that Fuji official sizing is different from many other manufacturers, and that their bikes are actually smaller in size then the official dimensions stated for the bikes, is this true?
could anyone suggest the right size for my measurements?
thanks and I look forward to your replies.
