bacchetta Giro 26 sizing for tall rider
hi, i am going to buy a giro26 and am wondering if any tall guys/girls are riding the medium/normal frame size. I am 6'3.5 with a 46" X-seam. Bacchettas website says i need a large frame buttttt, i rode a medium strada today with the euromesh seat and it seemed to fit perfectly. Are there any drawbacks of riding the smaller frame as a bigger guy? should i get the larger frame (i can't test ride it with out special ordering it)? I figure i will ride the medium Giro26 and if it fits, i will buy it... any advice against this?
Thanks for the help in advance
