    The right Bike

    I purchased a trek 5500 2 years ago frame a little large 60cm.I am 6 ft enseam 34 .25 inches kinda short waisted.I have been thinking endurance bike for a little more upright ridding position.Tried a 56 cm trek Domne 4.3 felt to small and did not feel like I was improving my situation even if it were a 60 cm I would not make the change. I have Dura ace and ultegra on current bike.I guess i will have to look at bikes in the 4000.00 price range.looking at Willier as well and the Grand Tourismo comes in 58 cm XL any suggestions.Any one own a gtx the Trek 5500 in 2004 was about 3800.00. Thanks Irontail

    Hello irontail,

    Welcome to Bike Forums.

    We have thje same measurements.

    Stick with the 60/61's

    This 61 would work great for you.
    I had two Specialized 61's.
