    Need sizing help

    Would like to know what sizing people would recommend for the motobecane fantom cx (http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...cross_ti_x.htm). I am 6'1" and have a 34-34.5" inseam. Here are the geometry options, but I am just not sure which is a good fit http://motobecane.com/ftx_geometry.html. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance guys

    Probably the 58cm. Maybe the 61cm depending on how stretched out you like to be. What's the Top Tube length on your Road Bike?

    I'm 5'11" and have a somewhat similar moto road bike, I got a 56cm and it fits perfect. I would be thinking a 58 would be perfect.

    That's a great bike. Enjoy.

    I'm 5'10" and ride a 56cm Fantom CX and it fits like a glove. A 58cm would probably fit you well.

    Probably go for a 58cm then, I know a 61cm is far too big, but I sometimes like the frame a little small like the 56cm and then just kick the seat post up as high as it can go, sometimes feels better depending on the bike. So where did you guys get your moto? I am just wondering if there are any outlets that sell motobecanes or they are mostly all from online retailers. Thanks for the replies guys.
