    Redline 9*2*5 Owners

    Which size frame do you have and what's your specs? I'm 6' / 32-33 and I have the '07 in a 60cm frame and was told it's too big for me. Just wondering what everyone else is on? Thanks..

    [EDIT]

    I am certainly a believer in you go with what feels right and fits YOU. I also have a One Way that is a 57 and the same LBS told me it was the right size for me. I took measurements of both and here is how it stacks up Note: 925 is a 60 and the One Way is a 57. Here is what doesn't make sense:

    top tube (from weld to weld)
    925: 55cm One Way: 54cm

    tip of saddle to centerline of stem (both have identical saddles set at identical heights)
    925: 43cm One Way: 44cm

    seat tip to centerline of bars in stem
    925: 52cm One Way: 55cm

    standover measured at approx same location
    925: ~ 32" One Way: ~ 33"

    They seem almost the same.

    I have the '07 in a 56. I am about 5'7" and I think it is definitely a tad big for me. I am having problems with the handlebar reach. I think I am going to swap out the mustache bars with some bullhorns and see if that makes things any better. I am also looking into a shorter/taller stem or a stem extender.

    That said, everything else about the bike is pretty awesome.

    I believe that is probably what I should have went with (58).

    I'm a tad under 5'10" and ride a 56 that fits me like a glove.

    5'10", 32" inseam (roughly), and I ride a 56. The TT is the perfect length for me.
