    Chase 2 frame size

    I am thinking of buying a Cannondale Chase 2 04 with price of 830 euros (abt 1140 dollars). The condition is great, but the frame size is L. I am 178 cm (5"8) tall. Is this bike too big, should I find size M?
    If anyone knows about this, I would appreciate help. Thanks.

    Here is a link to the geometry of these frames:

    Well there is only a size small and large so you don't have too many options. Both sizes will fit you, but it also depends how you are going to ride the bike. If you are going to more street riding and DJs then I would get the small, if you are going to do more FR then go with the large.

    You can't really size a bike like that on your height, I'm 6'3" and can ride a 22" TT.
