    If you ride a Nessuno/Bare Knuckles how tall are you and what size do you ride?

    I'd like to get an up to date account of who is riding this bike and heights/sizes. Using the search function a few people who were riding 54cm bikes were riding 50cm(!!!) Bare Knuckle frames.

    Someone I know is sitting on a 54cm Bare Knuckles frame which from Business Cycles site is a 55.5 top tube. Ordinarily 55.5 is on the large size for me, but reading past posts have me wondering if I should be looking at a 52cm frame......

    Any help would be appreciated!

    the 52cm Bareknuckle has a top tube of 54.5 and a stand over of about 31.5 in. I ride frames in the 53-55 range and but I just got a 52 Bareknuckle. My roommate rides frames in the 59-61 range and he has a 58 Bareknuckle. Just go like one size down from your normal size. Good luck.

    I have a few miles on a 54cm bareknuckle. I'm 5'10 and I'd say the frame is ever so slightly too large for me. Personally, I think I'm right in between sizes (52/54). I just opted for the larger one cause that's what they had in stock (and on sale). I wish they made a size in between the two.

    I've got a new 52cm frame I just bought and the seat tube length is actually around 53.25cm, center to top. I'm around 5'8" and I'm selling it cause I want something a tad bit smaller. PM if you're interested.

    I'm 5'10" and bought a 54 cm Bareknuckle based on the top tube measurement. I bought the frame w/o having the opportunity to try it for size. Getting overall measurements on this frame was almost impossible. That all said, once I got the bike build the s.o height was 32.5" too big for me. A 52 cm would probably have fit me better. Or maybe I'm just between sizes. So the frame/fork (black) is for sale if anyone is interested.
