Need help with Specialized Vita Sizing
I need a little help with making sure I知 getting the right size bike. I知 specifically looking at the Specialized Vita and will be using this bike to ride around the neighborhood and occasionally on the road. I found a website that showed me how to take certain measurements, and came up with the following (in cm):
Lower Leg 52.07
Sternal Notch 137.80
Total Body Height 168.28
The same website also made a few suggestions depending on the riding style that I am looking for. I知 not looking to be the most aerodynamic rider out there, and comfort is more important to me than speed. I do prefer a more upright riding position.
So after I saw these 2 suggestions I went to the Specialized Vita website and tried to figure out which size would work best for me based on the numbers they had listed, but a lot of the terms didn稚 match up and I知 confused.
I went into a local bike shop and was told a medium would work for me, but they didn稚 have the Vita in either size for me to try out. My only concern with a medium is that my arms are fairly short and I don稚 want to feel like I知 struggling to reach the handlebars all the time since I want a more upright riding position. Would a medium be okay or would it be safer to go with the small?
