Rode a 53 Swobo Sanchez
Rode my friend's and it felt perfect. I ordered a 53cm Pake but the seller hasn't shipped yet. They have 51's in stock.
Looking at the specs/geometry of both bikes....
53cm Swobo Sanchez
Virtual Top Tube: 535
Actual Top Tube: 521
Virtual Tob Tube: 525
Actual Top Tube:525
Virtual Top Tube: 540
Actual Top Tube: 535
So if the 53 Swobo felt good, the 51cm Pake is what I should really go for, not the 53 Pake?
I contacted the seller and they are able to send a 51cm Pake instead.
So this is obviously what I should do, right?
The actual top tube is what matters, not virtual?
PS. Going into the LBS I offended and paying them to assemble my bike and picking up a seat post from em. Thanks for the much-needed kick in the ass.
