here are some #'s from competative cyclist (competative, eddy, french fits). I have been lurking for a while, and reading alot. Long story short, i am 6'3 and have been to many LBSs, where i have been 'suggested' anything from 58-64 cm frames. Shops that had a 58 as their largest in stock seemed to suggest that size.
anyhow. i am borrowing my dad's 61cm motobecane fantom cx. He got it to get into cyclocross and didn't want to drop 1k on a bike to see if he is interested.
anyhow, let's not discuss BD in this forum, but rather how i can try to set up his bike (i have ridden about 50 miles so far) to get ideas of where i want to go when i buy my own bike. I have been using the french fit to set things up. I estimated most things in regard to a few measurements that i was familiar with (i am a physical therapist, so i understand anatomy/physiology/kinesiology pretty well).
I currently have it set up to get measurements suggested on the calculator for bottom bracket to seat and seat to handlebars. The seat feels quite low to me, but i am willing to give it a try. where would you guru's suggest starting for setup to tweak from there?
