Me and my wife are planning on getting a pair of Trek FX bikes (WSD for her). We are complete newbies.
These are our measurements:
Me: 6'1 tall with a 33" inseam
Wife: 5'3 tall with a 29" inseam
The dealer only sells the FX line by customer requests so there's no way to try them before buying them. The guy at the shop did not measure us at all and quickly recommended a 15" for her and a 20" for me. His recommendation sounded like an "educated guess" to me and we'd like to have a second opinion before making such an investment. If it's too close to call, is it better to go with the larger or smaller size?
Also, is the dealer supposed to give me a "size fit guarantee" on my purchase? What terms should I look for?
I understand that it's better to try the bike but we settled on this specific bike based on our needs, user reviews, local availability, warranty, etc. and we have no way of testing one.
Oh, and should we wait for the 2010 models?
