    Felt TK2 trade 56cm frame for 58cm

    I recently picked up a 56cm 2006 Felt TK2 in mint condition for a great deal. The only issue is that I would be a bit more comfortable on a 58cm. I'm looking to trade framesets. If anyone has a tk2 or something very comparable, I'd be interested to hear what you've got.

    You have learned an interesting lesson in bikes: it's never a great deal if it doesn't fit you.

    Also, there's a trade thread on this board already.

    I definitely hear you. I just took it out for a quick test ride and was blown away by the quality of the bike that I didn't pay too much attention to the fit and figured the 2cm difference wouldn't be that big a deal. But I have definitely learned that lesson. Thanks for the advice!

    word.

    TK2s, by the way, tend to fit small. a friend who usually rides a 52 has a 54cm TK2; i have a 52cm TK2 and I'm usually more at home on 50cm bikes.

    I'm just about 6'2" with a 86cm inseam and 58cm is always the way that I have gone. Maybe I should go for the 60cm?

    maybe, but check out the geometry chart on felt's website first, and compare the specifics to what you're currently comfortable on.

    i don't know what the large sizes are like, as i ride small bikes.
